Topic: lube job for the hottop (6 msgs / 61 lines)
1) From: Jeremy DeFranco
I would check out mineral oil, which they should sell at any good cooking
store (usually used to season wood cutting boards). That is what we used in
a butcher shop I used to work in when lubing the electric saw.

Mineral Oil - also available in just about any drug store ... people used to
use it (maybe still do) as a laxative.

Mineral oil will work as well.. cooking oil might become sticky after a 
while and thicken up a bit as it ranses?? (becomes old and rancid).
Mineral oil, I remember my dad giving some to the dog,  umm messy... 
don't ask.........  I also remember using it for an old battery operated 
train I had, you put mineral oil down the smokestack and when you ran it 
it puffed smoke.

another thing I use for my chocolate processor is olive oil to lube the 
shaft.  The manufacturer recommended it.  so theres another option if 
you can't find mineral oil.

Thanks Aaron. Lord knows, I have (and use) gallons of the stuff. We'll 
give that a try also.
