  • Oilers

    Well, I got 1 gallon of some Mobil No 10 spindle oil, and another gallon of some Way oil for my south bend lathe.
    I didnt like pouring some of the oil into the kitchen sink trying to get it into a little bottle that came with my micro mill.(didnt have any funnels or good paper around at the time)
    I need some REAL oilers to make my oiling applications nice and easy...
    I guess this is a dumb question, one of those things that everyone just knows about except for me. Ace or true value hardware have them? what kind? Whats your favorite?

    I got some pretty nice looking oilers at Harbor Freight, but haven't tried them yet. Some of the best oilers I have are contact lens cleaning solution bottles. You'll still need a funnel to fill them, but the don't break or dent if you drop them, they are precise and the price is right. I also use them for applying cutting oil when necessary.
