I recently acquired a Bell & Howell 70-DR in excellent condition. It didn't come with a user manual so I bought one and read it front to back. It talks about lubricating the camera and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could purchase proper stuff.

Thanks guys.

I use sewing machine oil with good results. Don't overdo it.

Synthetic clock oil works fine. It is non-acidic, non-gumming and doesn't migrate throught the mechanism. You can find it at clock shops with a precision oiler for less than $5.
