Hi Steve,

The reason me and Mick decided not to oil the motors was that it is a delicate job to get the tiny amount of oil on the bearings and the fact that I contacted the manufactura and the motors have sealed self lubricating bearings and the fact of the cost of the motor to be replaced is minamal.

We also noticed that if you put just a tiny fraction of oil on the bearings it would foul up the bushins and slow the motor down even when we used a very fine hypodermic needle.
