My wheel came with spinning wheel oil. What kind of oil is that? :??

I'm not sure...but I know a lot of people use gun oil as a substitute :shrug:

I use a multi purpose oil. Some spinners use powdered graphite

sewing machine oil....cheap and it works. Lendrum *supposidly* doesn't need oil...so we'll see on that.

Thank you so much! I was wondering what I could use instead, because that little bottle is expensive after you tack on shipping.

Lily,
A Lendrum spinning wheel should be oiled too, it just needs a whole lot less than some other brands of wheels. Its the sealed bearing where the wheel attaches that doesn't need oil on it.
I had some trouble with it making a weird clicking noise (it turned out to be a funky bobin- I was so relieved) and the first thing she did when I had it looked at was oil it up.
