Low viscosity lubricant Dapoil
Dapoil is a non-mineral oil based lubricant that has been especially formulated to lubricate and protect the delicate mechanisms of locomotives and rolling stock. Cheap lubricants can break down over time due to localised heat and friction leaving viscous deposits that can impair or even damage delicate mechanisms. Dapoils' unique formulation will not break down and will not leave any residues protecting the mechanism long after application
Dapol only recommend Dapoil is used to lubricate their locomotives.
We all know the benefits to be had from keeping our model railway locomotives and rolling stock lubricated: smooth running, no squeaks, less wear on the gears and bearings, and potentially more reliable pickup of power from the wheels to the motor or decoder in locomotives. In damp environments, oil can provide some protection against corrosion of metal parts.
But not everybody is aware that some oils can harm some types of paints and plastics used in model railways, and can be too heavy for use with the relatively delicate model railway gears and bearings.
This product from Dapol is safe on most plastics, and is low viscosity so that it will not ‘gum up’ the gears or bearings in your models.
