Default Re: Bass Drum Pedal Chains - oil/lubricant?

Altho the WD 40 guys crow about the product being an excellent lube...

WD-40 and Bike's
Myth: WD-40 Multi-Use Product should not be used on bike chains.
While WD-40 Multi-Use Product it is not a grease, it is formulated with strong lubricating oils and other ingredients, and is a terrific product to use for bike maintenance. It does not attract dirt or moisture to metal surfaces – just be sure to wipe off any excess WD-40 Multi-Use Product before riding.

they do admit it has no lasting power and were sooo not able to dodge the fact they had to create a new product, WD FARTY BIKE. Read the key words 'long-term'.

For long-term lubrication and other specialized bicycle maintenance needs, check out WD-40 BIKE. Developed specifically for cyclists and mechanics, this high-performance line of bicycle care products is sure to become a mainstay in the toolboxes of bike mechanics for decades.

So yeah, don't use regular WD 40 as a lube, unless you want to do it often.
