Caption: Oil being poured. This is pure refined light oil being poured onto precision machine parts. Oil is used in machines with moving parts as lubrication to help the parts move smoothly, and to reduce the amount of heat produced due to friction. The type of oil used depends on the machine, but is generally viscous enough to cover the parts, but not so viscous that it is unable to flow.
