  • New to me Phoenix-S model B

    Found a phoenix-s model b and bought it so now I'm needing all kinds of input. Wood lanes screened in August. What kind of oil and cleaner should I try along with a starting pattern. Thanks in advance.

          Good scores last night by a few but the back ends were flying I'm going to add a foot to the pattern to tame down the backends. Is there any extra maintence/cleaning with the rollers after or before oiling?
