Ok you are crossing wires and I need to go to bed just back from fire brigade training and very tired indeed.. I read your post that this 30k table uses synthetic oil what is not surprising, then reread when you posted again it was motor oil and synthetic. Not mobile one and what oil? If really motor oil not a good plan for reasons stated but synthetic is a good thing at least, if for a car engine it is not. Fed up to repeat myself but people dont understand oil and even companies charging far too much money dont understand either. Forget the price tag of turntables look at the resources of the company. And PLEASE spend some time to read up on oils.hand of ike wrote:I'm still confused....
Initially I said synthetic motor oil and you said a $30k table using this is not surprising..... synthetic is sensible.Ok synthetic does not form varnish like non synthetics do which is why I use synthetic oils. A 30k turntable saying you need synthetic oil is not surprising, mineral oil would not hurt it if changed regularly but synthetic is sensible. When varnish forms it blocks the sintered bronze, not good.. Any alternative oil I would use must be synthetic as I said before..
Now we can see that the Mobil One you have been saying is bad is a synthetic motor oil which you said shouldn't be surprising to find in a $30k table and as it's synthetic is sensible.
I want to know if you still are saying the same now you know that the Mobil One in my Gyro SE bearing is a non surprising sensible synthetic....
Is it or not according to you? And if not why not? Because as far as I can see this would fit nicely in both the Gyro SE and the Triangle Art and for which in the Triangle Art you described as not surprising and sensible? I can't see any difference between the synthetic Mobil One oil and the oil I gave in the Triangle Art description.
Sorry this is getting tedious but we may have term confusion here and would just like some clarity as on one hand you are saying Mobil one is bad but on the other that Synthetic Motor Oil is now okay, just so I am understood the Mobil One we have been referring to all along is a Synthetic Motor Oil.
