|For the similarly named robot in Fallout 4, see Tin Man.|
During the Chosen One's travels, they may come across the Tin Woodsman, a poor Enclave soldier whose advanced power armor has rusted into immobility. He pleads for help; picking up the oil can near him and lubricating his power armor will result in him gifting the Chosen One 150 microfusion cells as a reward.
The Tin Woodman is found standing near an old ranch house. Minor loot can be found inside the house, along with a rare Nuka-Cola fridge.

This poor soul has been stuck here in a rusty suit of Power Armor, unable to move, for far too long. Near the end of his strength, he manages to gasp out, "Oil can...." If you can find the oil he needs to lubricate his armor, he'll teach you to make any Power Armor you find in the future just a little more limber."
