Thanks. Am I right in imagining that the oil I'm spraying down onto it, needs to somehow make its way back up the shaft and into where the ball bearings are? I don't know what the system looks like or where they are; I'm just thinking it must be difficult to get enough lubricant on them.
I've got some of this that I use for my bicycle, or should I go get some 3-in-1?
This is the spiel
