Default Drip Oiler--with a secret--

I have been wanting to build a couple of oilers for my Kerzel engine, and today was the first chance I got to think about it very much. I want to be able to control the flow of oil, shut it off when the engine is setting idle, and have them easy to fill. I didn't want to use Loctite because it apparently will damage the clear vinyl tubing. I already have a couple of #10-24 shcs. drilled out and acting as bearing retainers/oilers on the engine, so these will Loctite onto the head of the screws. (Loctite won't damage the metal, only the clear vinyl) These plans are very adaptable to any engine, and the fact that there is some very definite control for the oil flow, and a way to shut it off if required are a bonus. If you like these plans, feel free to download them and use them, and if you do, a karma point would be much appreciated.---Merry Christmas.---Brian

Here is the most innovative part--the base with the holes for oil flow and a needle valve.

And of course, the needle valve. (I've got to get rid of that box of 100 #2-56 screws somehow!!!!)

I've just discovered that a 4 flute 1/2" endmill held in the tailstock chuck makes a perfect sized flat bottom hole in a peice of brass held in the lathe.-On re-reading this post it looks rather inane, but I am talking about the flat bottom holes which the clear tubing set into.

Does there need to be a provision to let air into the top as the oil drains out the bottom, or will there be enough leakage around the threads at the top?
