Hi all Just bought 2 brand new Adams oilers for my ML7 lathe but I was surprised to see, after trying to set the drip rate, that over-night both oilers had completely emptied. I was using engine oile in the old oilers but changed to Nuto H32 for the new oilers. H32 seems a lot thinner to me. As I understand it, the oilers are 'off' when the little handle is horizontal and 'on' when it's straight up. I got the drip rate down to approx 10 minutes and I've re-newed both fibre washers. Any idea's what I'm doing wrong?
