Here we have the original, traditional great-Ballistol that is produced according to instructions on the package already since 1904. All other varieties of the product are written to my knowledge only one "L", ie "Balistol" and are generic. Ballistol is not only weapons but also for devices with small and micro-mechanics, such as sewing machines to use ideal. I use it for my sewing machine for many years and use it for anything else. It resinify very slowly, so slowly as my experience, all other oils. Even special sewing machine oils are less suitable and gum up faster. The nice thing about Ballistol is also that it is ungaublich productive. A bottle (50ml) is sufficient for me 5 years or longer with frequent use of the machine. One can even use for the human body, for example for wound treatment, and it acts as a disinfectant. For pets to paw, fur and ear care, it is ideal. Ballistol get from me all 5 stars!
