Default Ball oiler or press button oiler

Hi All,

Since this is restoration related, I decided to post this here. I have been looking for a high quality 3/8" press fit oiler. I have tried searching all over the internet with no luck. A few foreign concerns like India, Australia, China, but no local suppliers. Anyone out there know of a source for just a small order of 2 or three. Gits, makes a cheap version, but I am looking for brass ones if possible. Thanks.

Joel

Hi I like old stuff,

Thanks for the reply, but I have looked at these sources already and they are not what I am looking for.

This first two are not brass and are Gits. Modern plated variety. The third is a steel one from India. The fourth has bad ebay ratings and is a Chinese import. I appreciate your help but was hoping for better quality available in limited amounts in the good old USA.

Any other options. Lathes, mills and other machine tools used to have these for lubrication. Any replacement sources for them?



Thank you.
