Neat little tool, around a tenner on the bay of e.
I've just made a rack of mini bottles for my toolbox from old eye drop bottles.
Washed and dried, labels steeped off, filled with oil, thread lock, bearing adhesive, glue and new labels printed up so I have a small amount of each to hand when out of the shop.

Those Pen Oilers are very handy, I have had mine for many years and use it when I need to oil my model steam engines.

I think your video summed it up nicely at 3m 10s.
‘If you are in the market for another little toy”
Not particularly precision, by the looks of it, and would one ever carry the correct grade of oil around in one’s pocket anyway. A proper oiler beside the machine suits me.

There are lots of precision type oilers on ebay including this one which looks very much like the ink pens that I used when I worked as a draftsman. It has a 0.1mm nib and it is for sale for AU$ 4.69. Less than 1/10 the price I paid for a Rotring pen.
