Re: non-gumming oil (was: 547 Fan lubrication) OT

Years ago I got a can of Slick 50 One Lube. It was actually a pump dispensor,
not an aresol, and I've use that for similar applications. It was a nice
product, still have half the can.

I see that they've "new and improved it" and removed teflon from the formula,
so YMMV.

I use MMO in my air tools, seems a bit thin for this application.

mystery oil which seems ok so far. I was thinking about using silicon based
gun oil though

Hi all,

The fan in my 547 was running slow and taking a long time to run up to
speed. I took it apart to find the bearings all gummed up with sticky greasy
old oil. I've washed it all out with an appropriate solvent and now need to
relube it. Is there a recommended oil to use? I have various grades
available ranging from 3-in-1 to heavy EP90.

Do you think synthetic motor oil is as good as Kano Microil non gumming
instrument oil? I'm getting low on that oil.
