For turntable bearings I have had the best sucess using BABY OIL .....
It has been around forever, It is light and clear and clean of impurities...It is dirt cheap...It is very clean and pure since it is for babies....
I bet it has had many years of research from J&J to make sure of it's puity....
And you don't need all the hype and marketing BS and $$$ of some trick oil....
I measured the difference with Baby Oil vs. Expensive trick oil...the baby oil had the least amount of bearing drag.....

Baby oil? that's a good idea; never thought of it.

I use 10-15W turbine oil--- "the Zoom Spout oiler" from any auto parts/industrial store.

Baby Oil happened by accident...
I use to keep the baby oil in a draw near the day I was looking for the strobe platter to check WOW...and then the idea occured to me when I saw the bottle....
I remeasured WOW after using Baby Oil and it made a noticable improvement...
