What Lubricant ?

Hello Dan; I was looking for some seasoned advice:
1. what kind of lubricant I should use on my machine. The mechanic I purchased it from said not to use a 3 in 1 and showed me a non staining sewing oil. The upholstery book i'm referencing says to use 3 in 1 and on some parts uses WD-40. I bought stainless Lily white sewing oil.?

2. Presser foot adjustment in the Adler manual seems vague to me: is it possible to bend anything or harm the machine with it being to low?

I've been adjusting my table and took your advice in previous threads on learning how to drive a clutch, with all common sense telling me to leave the pedal linkage at the end of the controll arm, I went to the middle adjustment and then the one closest to the elbow and made some of my most controlled circles.
The book i'm using is Automotive Upholstery hand book by Don Taylor. Is there any others you could recommend. Sorry To pick your brain so:
