Oil sprayer?

Postby Nathan » Sat Feb 11, 2017 4:37 pm

I currently use RemOil to spray into mainspring areas and such that aren't really accessible with a Q-tip. I'd like to be able to spray Mobil 1 into those areas instead. I could use a spray bottle but then I'm saturating an entire area with way too much oil. I'd like something that I could do a control spray similar to an aerosol can with the red hose installed at the nozzle.

The closest thing I'm finding is an air brush, but that's for spraying paint and way more complicated than what I want to do. I just want some type of sprayer that I can connect to my air compressor (I use a refrigerated dryer to ensure dry air) to spray a controlled jet of oil where I want it.

Any ideas if such a thing exists?
Thanks,

WD40 cans come with that red straw. :)
I use Rem oil in a syringe with a long blunt needle to reach remote areas. Just a drop or two.

My issue with RemOil is that it seems to evaporate away. I don't know if it leaves any tangible amount of Teflon behind for lubricity.

i use a needle oiler to reach the hard places, its easy to put just a drop or two down and move on.

My wife has an oiler for her sewing machine that has a very flexible bendable needle to dispense very small droplets of lube into very tight places. I just use a toothpick. They're under $10.

I like RemOil because it doesn't seem to gunk things up so much, but I probably use it more often.
