    what do you make of this?
    my pioneer has a sticker that says,use no more than 3 drops of oil.
    there is a small hole next to the spindle in the housing,the oil is suposed to then flow through the housing down the spindle and lube the shaft and then the ball bearing at the bottom.
    going by the makers instructions there's very little oil needed on my turntable??

    Just been reading an article by a well known US Audiophile and he uses this oil on his turntable. Its called Anderol 465

    It's 100 for 5 litres in the UK.
    Do you need 5 litres?

    You can use it in your mower as well!

    I use engine oil in my mower. It's a 430cc V-twin producing a whopping 15HP @ 3,600 rpm. Anderol 465 is totally inappropriate.

    Your probably right Kev, might not be heavy enough for engine but great for cables , bearings etc,
