I have some oil that came with hair clippers, would it be sufficient?

Do you have a silicon oil spray or something? That's what I would use since it doesn't destroy plastic, rubber, etc. unlike WD40 which is kinda aggressive and metal only.
Sure some machine oil should work.

Only oil I've got on hand is WD40 and generic oil for hair clippers, mostly made the thread to get an idea of what to use and where to get it. Or if I could even do it, since most ball bearings are sealed.

Assuming you are in the U.S, get this oiler from Amazon. WD-40 is definitely out and I have no idea what kind of oil is used for hair clippers.

What Lady Fitzgerald said. thumb.gif
WD-40 IS NOT A LUBRICANT!!!
Without knowing what the 'hair clipper oil' is I would guess it is a light machine oil and will work fine.

Breakfree is an excellent product as is Triflow. Both are primarily for freeing up frozen parts but do leave a decent lubricating film. The problem with both products you linked is they are part of Amazon's Add On program; the OP would have to purchase an additional $25 of other merchandise to be able to buy the two you linked (I wish Amazon would give people the option to pay a bit more for an Add On product instead of forcing them to spend money on additional products they don't need, not to mention I thought Prime was supposed to cover faster shipping on all products).

While I'm not personally familiar with the product I linked, it received excellent reviews and is a synthetic lube. Synthetic lubes normally do not thicken over time, allowing them to last longer, and tend to be "slicker". It's also more affordable since it doesn't require an additional purchase to be allowed to buy it.

My bad for not reading details. blushsmiley.gif
I guess I was just a little distracted by all this 'use WD-40' garbage and trying to find a lower cost alternative.

Synthetic lubes are usually very good. Should work fine.

Thanks for all your help, I need some stuff from amazon anyways so I'll pick up the hoppes oil and we'll see how it goes. Now to figure out how to remove the paint from the fans... White and red is not easy to match.

I use something similar to Starret Tool and Instrument Oil using a needle oil bottle, links below to similar items that I've used:

https://www.amazon.ca/SODIAL-Needle-Nozzle-Plastic-Machine/dp/B00IIDYBZ6/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1468939172&sr=1-1-spell&keywords=neddle+oil+bottle
