Good stuff. Freed up some rusty sliding door rollers the other day. Works like new again.

Edit: this is motor, I used the regular 3-in-one.

This has its uses but do NOT use this to lubricate a bike or other parts that move a lot. It's organic and gunks up pretty fast and is then hard to remove and actually makes it harder to pedal. Come to think of it, what is this good for? Between bike lube, WD-40, penetrating oil, lubricating oil, silicon spray, etc., I never seem to have a reason to use the can I've had for ages.

Ah, never mind, looked at the product page. It's for electric motors. I'm guessing that there are better oils for that too, though. And, although called 3-in-1, it's not their better-known general purpose 3-in-1 oil, which is the one that gunks up. Apparently this one doesn't, which makes sense if it's for motors.

I have had the same three in one oil can since 1991. when it gets low I just pop off the top and fill it back up with 10 w 30. LOL. Everything I ever work on doesn't know the difference.

This is for electric motors which use sintered bronze bushings rather than ball bearings, which you'll find in some fans, bench grinders, and other motors meant for long life in dirty conditions. Usually there is a felt wick for the oil around the bushing, and the bushing is oil permeable, especially when hot, so there is always a thin layer at the friction surface.

Engine oil, or regular 3-in-1, contains detergents or additives which clog up the tiny pores in the bronze bushings, which is not good. This doesn't have those additives, so this is the kind of oil you need for those types of motors. It also works just fine for oiling hinges and most things you would use normal 3-in-1 for.

Another option is air compressor oil, which is non-detergent and comes in a bigger bottle. I got a bottle of Husky full synthetic compressor oil for $8 years ago at the recommendation of a guy who repairs antique fans.

As a lubricant, perhaps. To fill it, hell no.

Yes, it will work well for topping off a jack. Pretty much any very light (10 or 20 weight) oil will work, and this is that. Regular 3-in-1 is also fine.

I recently used this on the blower motor of my Saab. Generally thats what you would use this for.

I think I only paid $3 at Lowes for this though so I probably wouldn't purchase unless you actually need it.

I'm in need of an oil for hedge trimmer blades. Anybody know if this would work well or would the regular 3 in 1 be better?

In my experience if you are looking to free rusted hardware use PB Blaster. If you are looking to lubricate hardware use Fluid Film. If you are looking to keep metal from rusting use WD-40.
