På eBay er utvalget stort - hva er det som skiller "turntable oil" fra ordinær, tyntflytende symaskinolje?

Ser at folk bruker både symaskinolje og platespillerolje, og noen bruker faktisk motorolje...

I've been investigating turntable bearing oils. Obviously I cannot find what actual oils are used, weights etc. So I have taken a different road (will explain later) but so far this is what I can gather:

Clean (unused) fully synthetic engine oil: may be OK, certainly reduces wear but may be a little heavy for some bearings.

WD-40: an outright no-no as it is mostly kerosene and only good for cleaning surfaces but not for lubrication.

3-in-1 oil: designed to penetrate metals to a certain degree. Has good viscosity but may be counterproductive over time.

Others? I understand any organic/mineral oils will degrade with age and go sticky and so synthetics are a requirement.

I have opted to go for some Mobil Vactra 2 which is designed for lathes, spindles and turning machine parts for ultra low friction and to maintain slippage. It is designed not to get mucky over age and remain clean. It is also an oil that does not attract moisture to its surface and provides anti-corrosion properties to metal surfaces. It is not designed to impregnate metal but to coat a surface in a fine amount and reduce wear in parts that grind/slide/rotate at speeds much higher than a turntable. It sounds to me like it meets all the required criteria to be a good TT bearing oil.

Any thoughts from technically proficient TT builders, or chemists out there? There must be alternatives. Oil may be pricey, but the prices hifi brands charge for TT bearing oil make it money for old rope.
