Lubrication of the Lee Load Master press is simple, but very important. They are  lubricated at the factory before shipment.

There is a small oiling point on the left side of the frame. Push the tip of an oil can tightly against this and pump the oil can as you work the ram up and down. Do this every time  you use your press.

The other lubrication points can be done every couple of thousand rounds.

There are three grease fittings in the linkage at the bottom of the press. Use a grease gun to lubricate these.

Remove the shellplate. Add just a little thick grease to the end of the indexer rod, the upper side of the side of the indexer rod closest to the center of the shellplate (it will be shiny) and the backside of the indexer rod. You just want to use a little bit of grease - too much and grease will work it's way into the priming assembly.

Put just a little grease in the center hole of the shellplate. You can instead apply a little grease to the shaft the shellplate hole fits around instead.

A thin coat on the bottom of the ejector, especially near the center. Again, be careful not to overdo it, you don't want grease working it's way into the priming system.

Put a little grease on on the end of the primer rocker arm where it touches the adjustment bolt.

There are three places on the frame that the indexing rod flipper touches as the press indexes. Rub just a tiny bit of grease on each of these points.

Rub a little bit of STP Oil Treatment or grease to the bottom of the tongue that holds the case inserter if you use it. VIDEO
