Works for me too
Although I'd reccomend a piece of rag on the garage floor underneath.
I use any oil I happen to have in the garage going spare, from engine oil to EP80 gear oil, I don't think the cables are fussy, as long as they get oiled and not greased.
Remember not to use too much, as it'll find its way into the drums.
I also tie the cables up in the middle so any water that does get in drains back out.
