More Information

ngIS might work for the Tin Woodman's oil, though it is a particular kind of lubricant used for disruptor cannons I am told. A more general word is watrIn. Do you need the verb ("lubricate") or can you work around that?

Jack Bradley asked: watrIn lo' works fine for apply the lubricant?

Sure, why not? Depending on how it's being applied, you might also use lIch or ngoH or vev or ghay; or include 'onroS. Or perhaps QIn "inject."
