Quote from: TelePlay on April 26, 2014, 02:48:01 AMWas searching the forum for info on lubricating an AE dial and came across a post using Tri-Flo so added that to the above list. Anyone using that oil, had success or failure with that oil?http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=3042.msg40879#msg40879
