In order to control oiling of wheels I found that the tip of a "pull spring hook" is very suitable to carry a sized drop to the exact place:

PS. For those of you that are unfamiliar with a spring hook: it is a tool - 28 cm long - used in unhandy places to attach a spring to the opposite hook by pulling the eye of the spring. The other variant is a push spring hook. The tip of this one is S-shaped - used in the same manner but by pushing away from you.

Perhaps you could bend a paper clip to accomplish the same confused (patent pending ... and probably soon available from PTC biggrin)

My Fleischmann oil came with a needle in the cap (like the old oil bottle from M*).
Makes it easy to get oil drops of various sizes and apply them.

Our Authorised uncouplers now come with a built in oiler. There is of course a slight extra cost but well worthwhile.

Sir Flash
Take care I like Marklin and will defend the worlds greatest model rail manufacturer.

Good tip I have used a pin to place a drop of super glue were I needed it but never thought of using it for oil.

Thanks Benny

I use a needle oiler very nicely.

The oil from LGB has the perfect applicator for me.

I've still got one of the old Marklin oil bottles, that Thomas refers to. It comes complete with applicator.

I'm picturing a Authorised Uncoupler looking more like a Unauthorised Swiss Army Knife?

And I can't get it out of my head! biggrin
