Okay, I'm a little sheepish (an unintentional pun, seriously) to ask about this since I've had a Louet so long...

Do you oil a Louet?  I have had one since last winter and was under the impression that you do.  But I saw things that say "No oiling!" in regard to a Louet. 

Since a few of you have Louets too, I was wondering whether you oil yours or not.  And if so, where do you oil it?

Thanks in advance,
Anne

Hmm, can't say I've heard of NO OILING for Louets, my friend who started me out spinning gave me some wheel oil and I use that on my S-10 on the orifice, the rest that the orifice piece spins in, and on the groove in the wheel. Hope that helps Cheesy

Thanks.  I thought so.  All this time I have been oiling it (if I don't, the family starts to wince and complain) and it's good to know I have been doing it right.  I don't oil the groove in the wheel though, do you mean where the drive band is?

Yep, I do just as a habbit, but when I do, I use wood polish mixed with the oil. I need to send mine back to get adjusted, I can't spin while someone is asleep in our house, even if I'm in the basement it's so loud, it clicks and squeaks....oh well they will fix it Cheesy Glad I helped Cheesy
