   I have a bottle of Nyoil which I bought from the web I 
think. A large bottle lasts forever. I am pretty sure its a 
synthetic. It works for shutters and for many other things. 
Not expensive or too hard to find. A Google search will find 
many sources. I also use a synthetic oil made by Lebell and 
sold mostly in hobby shops catering to model railroaders (I 
guess thats a railroader who behaves himself). Its available 
in three grades. The middle grade is much like Nyoil, the 
light grade is very light, almost like Kerosine, the heavy 
grade is "sticky" and useful where you want some damping. 
These also are not expensive.
