Lubricating the flex shaft


#1

I’ve watched the bur lube debate and have seen several suggestions
to use a bottle cap with cotton (sponge for those that can’t wait for
the flex shaft to stop) and oil. What kind of oil do you use?


#2

I keep oil of wintergreen handy, in a small metal watch parts tin
with a sponge for dipping burs, gravers, drills etc. (No am not
patient enough to let the bur stop spinning!)


#3
What kind of oil do you use? 

Vaseline or non graphite grease
