Re: higland park E10 restartup procedure?

I would just let it run a minute or three and see if it makes any bad noises, a bearing needing lubrication will usually announce its presence quite noticeably. Feel for heat after running a while if you can get a finger on the bearing housing, they may get a little warm but not hot. If a bearing does need lubrication grease or motor oil is the way to go. WD-40, though convenient is a poor lubricant. But I'll bet it's just fine as is.

A 9-inch saw (to me) is right on the border between water lubed vs. oil-lubed. Does it have a vise and an automatic feed? If not I'd go with water with some rust inhibitor added, as you'll be getting whatever lubricant you decide to use all over your hands while holding on to your work. I guess you could wear rubber gloves, though.
