When and where should I oil my Schacht Matchless Spinning Wheel?

The Schacht manual has good info on where to oil.

My tendency is to oil the flyer rod each time I change a bobbin. Keeps the wheel quiet. Also if the wheel has been sitting for a while, I'll oil around the footman (vertical bar attached to the footpedals), it tends to get squeaky first.

Those are the only two places a Schacht wheel is supposed to be oiled, according to their manual.
