Sewing machine oil is non-gumming, so that will be good for oboe keywork. Don't use anything like multigrade oil which is for door or gate hinges as that often contains resin which will gum up keywork.

I use isopropyl on a pipe cleaner to clean out old oil from key barrels and degreasing the screws (using an alcohol soaked cloth or paper towel). You can clean cork pads and the 8ve boxes with isopropyl on a cotton bud/Q tip. Don't scrub the pad hard as that can damage the surface - either wipe gently or use a blotting or rolling motion of the cotton bud to clean it.

Chris.
