I have the NSK Falcon G-1 which probably uses a similar type spindle, they
recommend "Shell Ongina Oil #15", "Esso Crystal 72", or "Mobile Whitelex
I was only able to find the Shell and had to buy a 5 gallon pail. You might
be OK with a spindle oil from J&L or something:
NSK does have an oil they sell, but after calling the # they gave me, then
contacting the 2 distributors they offered, I got nothing but confusion,
neither one could find it.
I have some Vactra #6 light spindle oil, and will try using that for a bit. I
think just about any good light spindle oil should work fine. At least I'm
hoping that is the case! So far so good.
