Hi Violette,
I've read that you're the person to contact when help with the Thorens 124 is need it. There are a lot of information about oiling this unit but I conside rit confusing, everyone have their own ideas. Would you clarify for me the following?: what is the level of viscosity that the bearing platter oil needs?, other one, any comercial brand that you can recomends?; and finally, how much oil is need it?, some say little, other say up to the top .... this is confusing and  your help will be apreciated. Thanks in advance.

Is that puts cooking oil in a car engine?  NO!
for a TD 124, it's the same ...
It is a device that should be on top, you do not put anything in it ...
Prior to that seen as the sole must take stock of turntable ...
Then we can know what she needs!  Okay

In the soundfountain site, that looks a very nice and informative site for thorens TD-124, recomeds to fill with oil up to 1/3  of the bearing cavity. The intention is that, when you insert the bearing, will overflow and that makes that the cavity -with the bearing inserted- will be full of oil.

Mine, with 2ml of "turbine oil", after I trun it off, spins for about 40 seconds, no more. looks like the mayority of owners reach a minute or more so, dont know if this can be cosndered Ok or need to do something else.

Hello Jorsan

At first look at you bearing and try to identify the bushing color.

Hi JOel, thanks for your response. My bushings are golden so I assume they are the bronce ones. Recently I bought a new set in Ebay but -as I read- looks like the bronce bushings do not need to be changed, just recharged of oil, is that correct?.
