Great oil works as described.I've used it to to provide lubrication for my Townshend Rock 3 TT inverted bearing.In the past I've used various types of oil from machine oil to 3-in-1 and I must say when I place my ear right up against the the turntable spindle/bearing when spinning, with the Michell synthetic oil in place if found the bearing has no sound at all. With some oils I could hear some noise, not much, but a little coming from the bearing - sounds were like paper sliding over a desk.Just a quick review and to put it In a nut shell, whats immediately obvious when playing music I found background noise quieter which benefits the whole sound.If you intend to experiment with oils as I did I found some oils can be too thick e.g. (avoid this one) 3-in-1 and some can be too thin which in my case has shown an increase in mechanical noise. Michell oil is just right for my rock 3 with it's inverted bearing playing an additional role to feed the oil from the bottom of the bearing (sump) to the top of the shaft.The bearing mechanical silence I've heard is clearly showing the working of the oil feeding system to be consistently lubricating the whole of the bearing.

Thanks for the review. There is no substitute for a good quality turntable bearing oil.
Purchased this and a Little Belter to stop the slippage in my Rega drive. worked a treat. Very expensive though.

Seems expensive for a few millilitres of oil, but worth it to keep the Gyrodec running perfectly for another few years
The oil has worked and the turntable is running smoothly. The advice I got on the phone before placing the order about cleaning the old oil off the spindle with a lint free cloth was very helpful

the service is always first class.
It does the job very well! And, more important, you don't need the whole jar. It's enough to lubricate the bearing twice.

As an engineer I must say this is seriously expensive oil!Very happy my car engine oil is much cheaper even though it is much more highly stressed.Having said that, £9.00 isn't too bad to keep the Gyro running smoothly.
