Default Pendlay bar maintenance

I have 2 of Pendlay's original mens bars, that have unfortunately stopped spinning freely and bind to the point where it's extremely noticeable during lifts.

Looking at Muscledriver's site, it looks like only catastrophic damage is covered by warranty.

So, any suggestions on how to get these bars moving freely again?

Thanks Glenn, was hoping you'd reply.

I'll oil them up and see how it works. Didn't know if there was a particular type, but I'll give the 3-1 a shot.
