Researchers often want to develop their experiments in terms of wide range of testing conditions and results possible to acquire. One way to achieve this is to adapt existing testing equipment to new requirements. This paper proposes a method for extending the capabilities of the T-01M tester with a pressure lubrication system of a pin on disc contact, its construction and adjustments. Tribological tests carried out with the presence of a lubricant showed the correct functioning of the modified tester. We obtained several variables for the selected friction pair and friction parameters in the lubricated joint: friction force, friction coefficient, mass wear, friction work, wear intensity and specific wear. Verification tests confirmed suitability of the tester modification, adapting it to friction and wear tests in a lubricated contact. The expanded stand can be used (in the future) for tribological tests of lubricated frictional pairs to measure friction, wear, friction pairs temperature and to compare used lubricants.
