Oil points

What do you call the little brass oling points in lathes etc with a ball
bearing in them and where do you get them?

If they are shaped to clip into an oil pump nozzle they are called nipples, and can be bought. I don't know the name of the others which are not so shaped and are almost flush with the surface they are set in, though I have made a few for my Myford ML7.

If you are looking to buy and are going to the London Model Engineering exhibition this guy is listed as being there.

I bought the oilers you describe from him at the ME exhibition in November. He has a wide selection of hard to find bits and bobs.
No connection apart from being a satisfied customer who would like to see a useful business stay in business.

The trouble is that his web pages are empty and I can not find any of his stock.

Then you click on the oilers and get nothing but a page which shows no oilers . There is a search facility that asks for part nos but that is no use.

Also try clicking on the grommet page, you get only one graphic the rest say waiting, if you click on the one graphic you get a page saying Grommets all sizes. That is it.
