Subject:  oil...

i have been searching for oil for a good 3 months now and i have finally
found some!  yesterday i called 10 places, each of them referring me to
someone else.  Well, one of the places will sell me mineral oil in 5 gallon
buckets for $29.75.  There are two different versions, Thuban 90 and Thuban
140, they have different viscosities.  Does this type of oil ring a bell
for anyone?  I don't want to end up buying something i can't use.  I also
asked him about transformer oil and they only come in 55 gallon drums,
which is a bit more than i can afford right now.  Well, any info that you
guys have would be great, thanks!  Once i get my mineral oil, my tesla coil
will begin it's final stages......very exciting....
