Lubricant #SG4455: Is this the equivilant of watch/clock oil, which is very light weight? If not, what is on the market that matches this type of lubricant?

RE: Lubricant #SG4455

I would check with customer service at Standard Oil to find out if the lubricant is availible or if there is an equivelent lubricant.

Well. I see that it attracted attention.

THANKS LES!

The L.,C.S.,A. is from the paceemaker factory manual that covers to the 1955 top rangefinder.


Of the lubericants listed, lubriplate is the only one that I know to still be in production.


SG4455 is probabally simular to 3 in 1 machine or electric motor oil. From my experience, somewhat limited, I suggest TRI-FLOW with teflon. Recomended for use on fine machinery such as guns, fishing reels, bicycles, ect. It works fine in shutters if used SPARINGLY.

In addition to Lubriplate (also known as "white lithium"), you can find powdered graphite at any hardware store. Needless to say, you will NOT find carbon tetrachloride, a known carcinogen which has been off the market for years, and probably not trichlorethylene, either. Instead use an electronic degreaser (from Radio Shack) or lighter fluid.
