Make lithium grease thinner.

  1. Jul 25, 2014 #1

    I was about lubricating my computer fan. The WD40/sewing/machine oil dries up quickly so I was wondering about Lithium grease, but unfortunately it's too thick, and it wont flow into the bearings.

    So I was wondering about ways to thin it. I read thinner is good, but can I use WD40 oil too? Finally it contains alcohol.

    WD40 should not be used as a lubricant.

    Sewing oil, or any of the other oils that come in a can to apply a drop at a time, such as 3 in 1 Oil, should be OK.
