Re: 600w oil

Or put another way, today's lubricants are higher quality and better suited to the job than anything from 1930. Steam Cylinder oil?

I use a diamond, Nail file. I got it in the Dollar store for, you guessed it, 1buck. It's slimmer than a metal file. Emery paper would be fine except Emery is a conductor. I don't want a conductive...
