I ues a drop of Ez-Ox on mine. Be careful to keep it off the strings and cables.

It all depends. Take a good look and see if it has bearings in the cam and ilder. If so then no lube is necessary as they are sealed. If you have bushings then a good teflon based lube will work just fine. Don't use WD-40 or anything with an oil base as this will only draw dirst or dust wihich will cause premature bushing wear.

Also WD-40 is corrosive, household/sewing machine oil works, just a drop though

You don't need any lube on the axles. The bushings are self lubricating and the bearing are sealed. Make sure they are clean, smooth and dry. That's it.
