Default Ball oilers

I need to replace all the ball oilers on my lathe, i would like this model



I need them with 1/4" pressfit mounting, my normal supplyer only sells metric, anybody knows of a place where i could buy them, preferably within the EU

Though they may be available in the US, I've not seen them in any of my usual assortment of catalogs. They may well be a European design, and only metric.

Mainer, it seems you are right, the D1 oiler, as they are called seems only to be available in metric pressfit you can get them with imperial treads, but not imperial pressfit, i think i will have to settle with these



From this store http://www.rdgtools.co.uk/acatalog/Button_Oilers.html The price is right, hope the quality are as well. Anyone who knows of this store?

Jason, you posted while i was writing

RDG are OK, I've bought tooling from them, though by the looks of those oilers they are quite cheaply made far eastern items and the body looks to be a pressing rather than machined from solid like the ones ARC sell but only in metric

One major problem with RDG tools is shippingcosts, it seems only expensive fast shipping is possible, and it costs 1½ time the price of the oilers, maybe ill see if there is other items i need that can be send in the same parcel
