Pressure oiler?

I'm sure this question has come up before, so hopefully someone has
the answer.
I need a pressure *oil* gun to use with standard 'hydraulic' type
grease nipples. I bought a 'Reilang' (?) oiler at one of the shows a
few years ago, fitted with a flexi hose & grease nipple adapter
thinking that would be the answer, but it was a dead loss. The trigger
mechanism just wasn't strong enough to deal with the pressures
required.
Anyone know of a good off the shelf alternative?
Thanks

Hi T, I'm i had that problem when i put a pressure oiler on my lathe carriage ...
as you say with a good Length of hydraulic ...grease gun extension doofer hose.
the oil wouldn't go in ..lots of resistance on the oil pump handle somehow it was fighting with the nipple ball and spring ... so i removed the oil nipple and fitted the pipe direct to the grease/oil nipple hole ...worked a treat ever since.
all the best...mark

You could go for Myford part number 15472 "new oil gun", which is a copy of the original Tecalemit oil gun.
Once you've got it. Take it apart, make drawings of it, then throw it away. Make a copy using proper hydraulic cylinder seals and a head that will actually seal around the nipples that you are using (possibly aided by an O ring), maybe a proper grease gun head with a sliding slave cylinder to lock it on under pressure. You may be able to keep the springs and outer case, but it may not be worth the trouble.
PS. I'm serious!

Thanks for that, I'll bear it in mind if nothing else can be found. I was hoping for something 'off the shelf', I've got enough projects ;-)
Surely somebody makes one? My DSG has about 20 oiling nipples despite having pumped oil to headstock, feed gearbox and apron! I suppose I could have a laugh and ask DSG if they can supply one.

One of these?
I have three of them, one for oil. They will last for decades, good old German craftsmanship (if you can accept that).

Nick,
I'm also interested. Unfortunately, there are no prices posted. For example, Item 12362, an 80ml oil gun, looks good if it does the job. I too have a Reilang, which was supposed to be the answer to a Myford maiden's prayer, but, like Tim, I find the trigger's made of old toffee and bends under the pressure of trying to pump oil past the spring-loaded nipple valves.
If you say that this'll do what we want, I'll take a risk and order one from the Pressol site. They can't be that expensive! What do you think?

This one cost -sit down- terrible 5.85 EUR + 19% VAT
No trigger here. Just sit it on the nibble and pump. You can push with your full weight, if you need.
I know they are good. They are in the business for centuries(?) and have a good name.
If you can't get them, I could buy some and you spread them on your tiny island, if others are interested :-))

Somewhere there was a light hearted reference to asking DSG for an oilgun. Reading these threads has prompted me to look their website up. They claim to do spares from 1945 and will still rebuild their lathes to 'as new'. There's a thought for Santa! Lathes.co.uk certainly has good words for DSG.

I did ask them about a steady, but no luck. I looked into getting a different DSG a few years ago, I asked about the chances of them supplying a secondhand taper turning attachment for it. From what I remember they would have been quite happy to do so, but the price was absolutely astronomical. I think they actually suggested a partially reconditioned lathe from their stock with taper turning as a better bet. Still way, way more than I could contemplate for the amount of work it'll do. Their spares guy does seem very friendly, though. I'm waiting for a quote for some new way wipers, I might just ask him about the oilgun when he gets back to me .
Incidentally I asked Monarch in the US about way wipers for the CVA (those for the Monarch 10EE would almost certainly fit), the price wasn't too silly but the quote for shipping from the US was outrageous so I've made do with home made ones.

Any more? No problem buying more and shipping them to one of you. Hope you can wait some days, because there is a minimum charge in the shop where I intended to buy them and I just got the dial-indicator (1/1000mm) I needed from an auction (so no need going there, but they always have something I'd like to have :-)).
Paypal: No, but we will find a way. I always am in need for some books from Camden in exchange. 8-)

How much is "a couple"? 3? I'll go there on wednsday next year (no drinking this new years eve) so others are welcome to add their orders. The one with the second most oilers ordered will get the whole package and will have to distribute it in England (less postage). Or anyone volunteering?

Is there a bigger version? I could only find that one by putting the number into the search function, what heading does it come under? I don't think 80ml will go far on my machine ;-(
Thanks
