The guys at powerhouse recommend White Oil or machine oil, but what oil should be I looking for at my local automotive parts store? I couldn't find any of that, I do have lithium grease and multi-purpose grease spray, what should I use?

Stop by Sears or anyplace that sells air tools and ask for air tool oil - it clear really light oil but buy the smallest bottle since one bottle will last for years!

air tool oil or an extremely fine gun oil would work well.

What part of the Flex needs oiling? I haven't used mine yet...

THAT one I knew about. I fingered a dab of Royal Purple 10w-30 on there already. Don't see how it could hurt anything. I was asking, because I was afraid perhaps the gears needed oil or something more potentially harmful...

People have been using motor oil without a problem.
