Anyways posts say in other places that even the Technics DD turntables need oiling after 2000 hours. I just wrote about my Hitachi Bearings on post that is
close to this one. I have pretty pictures too!! It did make a difference as i was hearing noise from the motor, into the cartridge on the lead in silent passages. Not really loud, you would have to turn up the volume, sort of like a low amp hum, rumble.
Now after re-oiling the base sound level is much better!! No rumble!!
Singer oil is so thin, I can't see it gumming up even at lower house tempuratures. Though if your stereo is out in a out house, well just
go look at a sample of oil at that temp and see if it is flowing slower.
When was the last time you oiled bearings? 2,000 hours = 1,000 hours for one stylus, so around 2 styluses ago. Course if your vinyl is in nice shape they
last longer than 1,000 hours.
Ok thats all I can think of.
