I will have to try some of the Mineral Oil for animals ... where do you find it?

I tried the Covington Oil and it makes me break-out in a rash. I have since settled on the oil called Roc-Oil but it runs about $23 a gallon + shipping. It works without the rash, so I pay the price. In order to use less oil I put a silicon bead around the bottom on the saw pan and use it to kepp a set of bricks stationary. It's not to hold oil, it keeps the bricks from moving due to vibration. The bricks save me just under a gallon of oil on a refill.

The rock vice and slide mechanism is not sow so the bottom of pan can be seen.
