What would be a good oil to use in an oiling can to lub lawnmowers, doors, campers and other moving/articulating joints?
Lots of good suggestions, and I'll add a few lubes I've used.
Liquid Wrench Lubricating Oil
Fluid Film, both aerosol and bulk
Liquid Wrench Chain and Cable Lube
And, of course, WD-40
Can't say any stuck out as a BAD choice, though each has a niche. Gradual experimentation and attention to detail with yield the proper oil for the proper job eventually. I will say that my go-to general purpose oil has become M1 ATF. Just seems to work well for "stuff."
