    Lubing my direct drive Technics SL-1300?

    I never have and it works flawlessly but the manual says to. Can I use the very thin mineral oil which came with my Oster hair clipper? Dang if I want to spend a bunch for exotic oil I'll never use again. What say yall?

    There is a good wise crack I could make about lube and direct drive but I'll be good!

    I would not use mineral oil unless it is light mineral oil.

    Try some gun oil with teflon or a light machine oil. You will want to use a light weight oil.

    I think I've got some light weight sewing machine oil around here somewhere.

    That should work. A heavy oil may gunk things up.
