These are bottles of Liquid Bearings, the
legendary oil that everyone has loved that has ever purchased it (please read
our 100% positive response). These are brand new 1-fluid-oz. bottles with the
characteristic needle dispenser tip.
This is the synthetic
lubricant that consistently outperforms all others currently available. It
attains DOUBLE the performance in the metal-to-metal grind tests of other typewriter
oils, and has incredible low and high-temperature characteristics, which is
absolutely necessary for proper typewriter lubrication but completely lacking
in petroleum-based oils. Don't use them on your
typewriters any longer! Actual oilsleave sticky
deposits when the short-chain molecule components evaporate over time.
Petro-oils vs. synthetics:
Petroleum-based oils lack both the lubrication performance
and oxidation stability of synthetics. Real oil is made up of a mixture of long
and short chains of carbon and hydrogen atoms, and under certain conditions the
short-chain molecules evaporate, and the unstable molecules oxidize and break
down. This leaves a sticky residue which can actually “gum up” the device it
was intending to lubricate. Conventional oils also contain varying amounts of
impurities, such as sulfur, waxes, and unstable hydrocarbons which are left
behind as residue deposits.
In contrast, synthetic oils are made using
a process that re-arranges the structure so all the molecules are uniform in
size, shape, and weight, an ideal phenomenon which does not occur in nature. While
petroleum-based oils that are extracted from the ground must then be refined to
attempt to minimize their shortcomings, synthetics are custom-designed to
produce the ultimate lubricant, with inherent
performance characteristics vastly superior to any petro-oil.
Using synthetics after using petro-oils:
It is perfectly safe to begin using Liquid Bearings
on all your typewriters
immediately, even if you have been lubricating them with conventional
oils for years or decades. It is fully compatible with all vintage and current
oils, and will eventually flush away the residue of the evaporated real
oilover time. You will easily notice that all of your pivot points,
slides, bearings, rollers, and gears will move easier with Liquid Bearings,
especially if you have been using petroleum-based
oil on them for years.
The odorless lubricant:
One of the most pleasing characteristics of Liquid
Bearings is that it is engineered to be essentially odorless!! It is such a pleasure to work with your
equipment and not have everything, including your clothing and hands, smelling
of oil! Compare it to any other lubricant, petro or synthetic, and you will
prefer working with Liquid Bearings!
Where to use it:
This fully synthetic proprietary blend is suitable for
all typewriter uses, whether on bearings and gears, friction
points of mating or sliding metalparts, bushings, or general corrosion
prevention. It does not contain any graphite or Teflon components, it will not
attract or retain dirt and contaminants like petroleum-based oils do, and will never harm, soften, or discolor
any plastic or rubber components or painted surfaces.
Please note that there is a “synthetic oil” trick
which some manufacturers are playing on consumers. Recently relaxed rules in
the labeling and classifying of oil products now allow up to 30% of an oil to
be derived from petroleum-based products and still call itself synthetic! Don’t
be fooled! Liquid Bearings
contains only 100% synthetic components and no petroleum products, graphite, or
teflon. It is an incredible lubricant that will also immediately begin to
remove the deposits left by years of petroleum lubrication!
The bottle & needle tip:
The bottle is made from LDPE and is very soft to use.
The high quality stainless steel 18-gauge dispensing needle lets you lubricate
your equipment precisely, without getting the oil on the rest of the typewriter.
The needle utilizes the patented Luer Lock which is used on pharmaceutical
supplies and is top quality. It has a leak-proof scabbard which covers the tip
of the needle between uses. Many other typewriter oils come
with crude plastic nozzles or eye-droppers which literally drool out the oil. Liquid
Bearings is able to be placed exactly where you want it every time, drop by
