Description

Since the middle of the last century, the finest instrument oils were derived from high-grade whale oil. Such oils had high viscosity and superb resistance to both oxidation and gumming. They also had superior film strength on metal surfaces. Today, Federal law prohibits use of marine mammal oils. Fortunately, it has been found that jojoba beans produce oil of a similar molecular structure. This oil has been combined with synthetics to produce Nye Clock Oil 140B. It brings back the qualities of the old whale oil, and is the finest instrument oil available today. It is highly recommended for sextant lubrication. It is packaged in a 1/4-ounce bottle. SW 0.3 lbs.
