The 'Zoom Spout' Turbine Oil (Supco, other mfrs.) is brilliant for
lubricating any fine mechanisms. It's also quite inexpensive, and the
extensible spout is worth the price of the bottle alone. The oil contained
is crystal-clear and somewhere in the 5-10W range, non-detergent and will
not gum up.

Here's another little jewel, that no mechanical geek worth their salt
should be without - the General Tools 589 Precision Oiler. This is a
high-quality, leak-proof refillable oiler, that allows very precise
dispensing of even the smallest droplets.

As an example, eBay item #131703297238
