You could try calling Kevin at KAB in NJ. I have Kevin's add-on damping system for my Technics 1200 
tonearm. I think the fluid he uses is silicon oil, which may be the same thing Paul is talking 
about. If it's silicon oil, and you happen to lease a copying machine, you may be able to get a 
bottle at no cost from the copier service guy.
