A quality Needle Tip oil bottle???

Post by chreim20 » Tue Sep 20, 2016 12:41 am

Hey guys, I have several small tubes of Shimano bantam oil and wanted to put them all in one bottle with a needle tip applicator for oiling bearings. Do any of you know of a quality bottle for that purpose? I've found some locally but the quality is not there. Any suggestions would be awesome! Thanks guys!

I have a few of these, but I think I bought then in a 3 pack. I don't remember paying that much for them. They're good quality though: https://www.amazon.com/Racers-Edge-2-Ou ... edle+oiler

Here's a 6 pack but I can't speak to their quality: https://www.amazon.com/Darice-Needle-Ap ... QBBYC64867

I also bought the top one last year for this exact purchase - has served me well so far.

Orvis sells a glue bottle with a needle top which looks just like a gun needle oiler except the needle opening is really, really tiny for applying glue drops to flies. I found them superior to my gun needle oilers for controlling oil drops on bearings.

You may want to try a syringe for application. I use them for acrylic work and thin glue. My current oil came in one and its great.

The Daiwa needle oiler is only $4 and it has a steel needle that is small enough to fit inside handle knob caps. They will break if you squeez too hard, but the slim shape fits well in tight places and they don't leak when on their side unless the bottle is cracked. i keep one in the boat for on the water use and on my tuning bench at home.
