I need some and can't remember where I got them the last time. I don't need the whole oiler, just the tips.

Anyone have a source for these?

TIA.

Not sure what size your looking for...

 

Make your own custom tips.

 

A foot of 316ss will last a long time, not cheap.

Ack...I see I should have been clearer.  What I actually need is the small "caps" (oftentimes red) that cover and seal the end of the oiler.  Michael came close with precisionoilersplus, and they have a bunch of this type stuff, but not what I actually need.  I may use them and go another way as a fallback.

John,

 

I find them on the floor when I'm at the track. :D

 

I made one by drilling a hole in a piece of plastic from a car model parts tree.

Slick7 531...Eagle is out but ERI still has 3 cards, given the status of Slick7 we may not see more.

 

I've got a card on the wall but as was noted, there are usually more on the floor mixed in with the body clips.

I do not know about Slick7 but Rudy Garriga has been pretty involved with other electric vehicles.

Tim nailed it...but getting them is the thing.  I can improvise, but would rather not.

 

 

Rob, I have plenty of oilers (*I actually use syringes for better measuring), I only need the tip caps...er "scabbards" (thanks Phil!)

hey i use those for etching gel in dentistry you can get them cheaply by going to any dental supply company they are dirt cheap,and they fit over the gel syringe and once the gel is used up you could refill the syringe with whatever.
