Yeah I've been using various types of 3 in 1 (silicone, dry lube, regular) as well as Viper Lube.  Different types of different openings... so to speak

DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I use WD40 to clean and blast dirt away from clock movements then spray 3in1 to lubricate. Spray silicone is good for the chains on cuckoo's

Back on topic a bit, I have oil from my RC car days which I still use often.  I like it because it performs rather well and has a neat little applicator:

Did you know the best thing to use to get dirty motor oil off your hands is baby oil.

Uh oh.  It has chemicals which get absorbed through your skin and get into your brain.

Rustic would be fresh cow poo

As an aside, when I used to work at a computer repair shop, we rebuilt fans often and I once used hand lotion as grease.   The fan spun for a few weeks like that.
