    What to use to oil cheap bar

    I just picked up a Rogue curl bar, and I want to try to sell my old cheapo curl bar. I took it apart to clean it. Its just 5 pieces: bar, 2x sleeve, and 2x allen bolt. There's quite a gap between the sleeve and bar on the inside. Do I still use standard 3-in-1 or is there a more appropriate option for these?

    If you have something to soak it in, I recommend citric acid powder (CAP): water in a ratio of 3 oz:1 gal. Soak it for 24 hours and then wipe dry. Vinegar will work in a pinch also. If it's just a little touchup or removal of light rust that's needed, manual removal with a wire wheel is my go-to method.

    All I wanted to know was what oil to use. I already cleaned it. And now I already greased it up with some water resistant silicone spray.

    Gotcha. Typically, once only oils a bar going up for sale for the purpose of addressing rust. FWIW, I use 3-in-1 on my bars.

    I took it completely apart and fully cleaned it, so it needed to be reoiled. I did have to get some rust off, but the oil doesn't help with that. Just wanted to make sure the sleeves spin freely.

    3-in-1 or Tri-Flo works fine.

    I have a raw steel bar and I think I'm going to start using a gun oil wipe on it once in a while. Seems like it will work well.

    If you are talking lubrication between the internal bar and the external sleeve you could try Super Lube.
