You're looking for SAE 40W oil - try a hardware or auto parts store for the oil and get a cheapie eyedropper.
Thanks guys. It seems crazy to me to buy a quart of motor oil so I can use 1 drop! There has to be a better way.
Hi Scott,... recommended by Ferrari for high speed racing:What's good for your car is good for your turntable ... Happy New Year
I own a VPI Classic that probably needs a little lubrication. The manual says, "After at least one year of use, the platter bearing and motor will need to be lubricated. For the platter bearing use 1/4 teaspoon of white lithium grease placed on the ball. For the motor, use 1 drop of 40-weight motor oil below the brass piece."This is probably stupid, but can anyone tell me where to get a drop of 40-weight motor oil? I've been looking online and have found sewing machine oil, turbine oil, wd-40, shaver oil, etc. but nothing that is specifically 40 weight. It needs to have an applicator or nozzle to fit into a small space. Any suggestions????
Hi I work in the trades here is what I use to lubricate motors ....Silent Run Motor oil is no good because of the detergent in it ...............Bill
But do you lube the spindle with Silent Run?Paul
The recommended viscosity is for filling the gap (with fluid support) between spindle and bearing, that is it.
all jokes aside,the VPI Classic uses a 600 rpm AC synchronous Hurst motor,which needs a drop of "synthetic E. P. oil" from time to time.If in doubt - contact Harry Weisfeld.
