For the machine, it is good to take a look at it once in a week to make sure it is in good condition. Wipe dust off using a wet cloth or a brush. Also, add oil before using the machine in case you are using a manual oil mill. For an electric mill, do not forget to switch off the lights once you are through.
While the mill can handle large scale production, it is always advisable to take breaks in between. This gives the machine time to cool off to ensure the heat is not transferred to the oil. Besides, the mortar might get damaged if it becomes too hot. An additional aspect of maintenance is training the person who will be suing the machine how to operate it. A person who is trained can identify a malfunction early and take early measures to avoid costly repair.
