Back at it with the questions again!
So, since there arent many option to but yoyo lube in romania, and international shipping is quite pricey, i want to make my own lube. I saw one of brandon vu’s vidoes, where he uses 1 part 3-in-one oil to 3 parts lighter fluid, the only problem is, as far as i can tell, that there is zero 3-in-one here. What could be a substitute, and is it really as good as he says?

Any help appreciated!
Sewing machine oil I’ve heard is a very high quality thin oil and usually cheap. Is that available?
Someone in EU, send a bottle of thin lube to Aaronn!
According to the data sheet on the 3in1 site, that oil is mostly “Severely Hydrotreated Heavy
Naphthenic Oil.” Not sure that helps .
Try looking for “Light Machine Oil” I feel like it would bring up stuff that’s very similar.
Yes it is. I used it once on an old bearing, put waaay too much, and the bearing is still responsive and gritty even after cleaning it
Sweimg machine oil will do the trick just fine.
Even the little bit of oil they include with hair clipping kits would work as well.
Alright. Should I dilute it with something like the brandon does with 3-in-one?
