The circled numbers show the points that require oiling. Use a light machine oil or a 10 or 20 weight motor oil. 3-IN-ONE multi-purpose oil is a good choice. The numbers in parenthesis indicate the number of drops of oil to be used. For frequent or heavy use, oil all points two or three times a year. For occasional use or light use once a year is sufficient.
