Thread: AO turntable bearing oil

  1. #1

    Default AO turntable bearing oil

    hi,
    is your oil ok to use for an elite rock 2 inverted bearing?
    im using industrial sewing machine oil at the moment but it may be too thin??

    the stuff i got with brand new rocks was a black oil identical to the linn black oil

    its about the thickness os 20/50w motor oil

    thats about right for the rock bearing and should make your inner fall down very slowly

    i have both the linn oil and and the thick booster oil ...both will work wonders

    why do you say that? actually it doesn't have any stickers on the back at all,i phoned townshends and explained the story and the lady i spoke to remembered the guy who worked there,we both came to the conclusion that as it had no stickers on the back it more than likely was got out through the back door so to speak

    ive just been checking out your site,what would be best for it please,the linn oil or the booster? also how do i buy it as there doesnt seem to be a buy it now tag like the rega spacer kit has??

    ITS roundabout serial number 301 that was my personal deck
    i know that from the colour of the plater and the top finish

    the finishes changed every few months as max got new parts made

    if it has no serial number then u are right about it being a employee discounted unit etc


    got your payment ..sending oil tomorrow matey
