I've been using Hob-E-Lube Gear Lube 655 from a 7-pack assortment, and it works well. Here is one of eBay auctions for the 7-pack: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... K:MEWAX:IT

I have one of those - not sure if it's the 655 or not. But I need something heavier, more like grease than oil. The oil tends to get flung around too much.

The 653 and 654 are indeed way too runny. 655 is pretty heavy, but if you want something that does not move, 656 or 657 could work.

I gotta see what exactly I have. And get thicker stuff next time I'm at the hobby store.

Woodland Scenics makes a line of lubricants called Hob-e-lube, ranging from graphite, to teflon based grease, light oil, ultra light oil, and a heavier grease for transmissions and such.

Hmm, interesting! If it is plastic-safe, why not?
