Rust in tail stock

George Taylor
Cleaning up my mini-lathe for a demo next week ... the tail stock was very difficult to advance with the wheel (moves OK on the lathe bed). Got it dis-assembled and there is rust inside and out; all happened while equipment was in storage so it is not a big surprise. Will clean the rust tomorrow but was wondering what lubricant, if any, should I use for the quill so it will move as it used to?

Thanks
