you’re better off going and getting some sewing machine oil.

Jojoba oil is a vegetable oil. Don’t use it. You want a silicone or petroleum based oil.

Jojoba has too many things that can gunk up the bearing. (Good ol’ Wikipedia says it’s waxy… not too good for a bearing.) I would run it dry and wait for sewing machine oil or trumpet valve oil if you can.
