The oil can is such a day to day object in the workshop, but after a couple of years my cheap buy from the internet failed me. I really could not bring myself to fix it as these are not meant to be taken apart.
My replacement was this Laser Tools oil can that I purchased from Halfords.
This is of the style of the previous oil can, simple design – what could go wrong.
The nozzle is a flexible tube with a piece of wire down the centre to allow it to be bent into a position.
A small brass ferrule at the end has a taper that allows oil to be delivered to the oil holes on machines.
A pool of oil on the HobbyMat lathe bed.
I wind the saddle to the extremes of the travel and apply oil to the main leadscrew.
