Found this ¼ full can (See label).
Isoflex PDP 61 A made by Kluber.
It's red in colour like transmission fluid. What I found online says it's for fine mechanisms and fast spinning things like turbines.

Anyone seen this stuff and know what use it is to the home handy man?

Mf, no clean oil is worth throwing away haha

I would just use it in an oil can for general lubrication. a $15 thumblever spout oil can saves a lot of money compared to aerosol lubricants. Mine pumps about 1-2L per year. My last can of silicone spray lasted me 3 years haha

I can use it to replenish an oily rag as well.
Somehow it reminds me of using lemonade to cool your feet!
It may well have a very handy specialist use even I can take advantage of. I already have a pocket size bottle of 3 in 1 oil that I will probably never use up.

I looked it up in the technical services database. It is apparently a special oil developed for use in teletypewriters. They still use them in air traffic control centres. The sheet says it is also ideal for precision measuring equipment.

Fully synthetic.
Maintains characteristics from -45 to +100 degrees Celsius
The oil has an extra long shelf life (exceeding five years).

Sounds expensive!

That's making Tyler and my suggestions sound all the more comical haha.

I did see the part about being used for precision instruments.
I'm sure it's ok regardless if it's ± 5 years old.

Been a while since I studied this stuff, however, I think five years may be the maximum they test to within that class.

Hi Ironbark

I have always wondered why the magic 5 year mark - you are probably right - the oil companies just test and ensure 5 years, because by that point its a) better sense to tell the consumer the oil you bought is useless and b) given retailers long enough to clear stocks. By 5 years the oil company will have come out with a new blend and the old one will be off shelves.

I am using oil dated 2012 in briggs at the moment, and have a lot of oil back to 2005ish (most 2015 onwards) that I wont hesitate to use. I am using 2018 oil in my car at the moment
