Ez Board walk JR lube system
« on: April 14, 2019, 10:25:29 AM »
Got my mill set up yesterday but didn't start to saw.  I found that the blade lube bar that turns the fluid on the nut was lose?  I'm having a hard time getting the ball valve to completely open and close when engaging the blade? It seems like maybe it does not need to be completely open when the blade is engaged?  Any help would be appreciated.  I will post some pictures as I have moved the Saw base to a drier spot on our property.  It made for a long day moving and leveling etc. When the saw got here in the morning, it needed to be pressure washed due to the muddy conditions on our road. Never fails, it poured rain the night before Stanton's guys show up :D.  I'm sure I'll have a few other questions as I go along.  I'm taking my time going over the saw to make sure I'm doing everything correctly before I start cutting.  I'll take some new picture today and post them later.

The owners manual for my EZ-Boardwalk mill said that the valve should only be opened enough to drop a couple times a minute I believe. I think it also recommended you use 1/3 chainsaw bar oil and 2/3 diesel.

I have 2 valves on my mill. One to adjust and one to turn it off and on. I can fine turn it,and than when I need to turn it off, I can turn it off with the other valve.

that's how an ez boardwalk jr is set up and when you disengage the band it automatically shuts off the lube and when you engage the band the lube is turned on. jg
i thought i was wrong once but i wasn't.   atv, log arch, chainsaw and ez boardwalk jr.

On my EZ Jr. the ball valve opens plenty far enough that it will not restrict any amount of "blade lube".
The valve that you adjust your flow with is the small valve and you shouldn't need bunches of lube for it to be doing it's job.
SOMETHING TO CONSIDER....
I've read somewhere and it makes perfect sense, if your blade is not in a log cutting you don't want to have your lubed turned up to high because you can actually float your blade right off the wheels. I only use enough lube to keep my blade clean, which more times than not I can just leave it run at that flow sawing or not.
Hope that helps some.

Thanks for all the replies.  I think I got it dialed in.  I'm getting about one drop every 4 or 5 seconds.  Stanton suggested diesel.  Seems to keep the blade fairly clean cutting red pine.  Still learning the saw and have only sawed a few logs.  Rainy weather has kept things muddy making it though to move logs around without making a big mess with the tractor.
