There are still managements, fortunately rare, which when buying lubricants, think the first cost is the all important factor. This is an illogical attitude. Why should lubrication be treated in this Cinderella fashion The same managements would rarely buy other commodities in the same way. For instance, when a new spinning frame makes its debut their specialised knowledge is at once brought into service, and very careful consideration is given to such questions as output, manpower requirements, and yarn quality. Yet lubrication can affect all three.
