Subject:
Need slipperiest oil

Wiley Horne--So. Calif.
Hi all,

Don't laugh please. Am getting a Paul Hamler reproduction of the 1882 Miller Patent plough plane back in smooth working order. It's a metal plane, of course, and the fence slides on two polished steel arms. What's the best oil for these arms? I am using a light machine oil, but is there anything slipperier that won't gum up over time?

That is all.

Thank you,

Wiley
