          Hello Dave
          Oil your saw after use the while bearings are warm. The oil soaks in better over idle time with less chance oil will dripping on your workpiece. SAE#20 oil is slight bit thicker. Most oils catch dirt so when starting up after serviceing run the saw ror few seconds then clean drips if any. Good Quality sewing machine or clock oil will not leave residues but are thin like 3 in 1 oil.

            G'day Dave,
            Every couple of months I give my saw a good blow out, and put few drops of oil on any and every moving part. I then run it for a few minutes and wipe any excess oil of, especially on the parts that may throw oil onto stuff I'm working on.

              I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....
