simoon raises a fairly good point about oil - the turntable bearing has a pretty easy life compared to most bearings so you would think that a good quality synthetic automotive oil would do the job.
sorry missed part that you didn't need any
Years a go when the LP12 was still very young and the motor was mounted on a cork gasket I was in discussion with a certain Mr T who advised the use of "good sewing machine oil" in the main bearing of the Linn and as the early LP12's and Rd11's were very similar that may be the oil to use?
