Re: precision oiler

Syringes with rubber seals fail because the oil dissolvs the rubber.  If you require a syringe, you will need to find one with a plastic seal.

All of the precision oilers, that I recall, simply use a needle tip on a small bottle or tube, and inject oil by squeesing.  With a really fine tube, this actually works fairly well.  It can take a bit of pressure to move even quite light oil through at a drop by drop rate, with one of my A-West bottles.

My question about oilers is more basic.  Not who will sell me oil.  Who sells an actual precision oiler with different needle sizes?  I have tried medical hypodermic syringes, put the plunger disintegrates.
