I would like replace one of the oilers on my Myford ML7 lathe. I got the lathe used and one oiler I can fix the other one is broken and not usable.. Anyone have a used oiler I could buy.?

A new pair is £46 + postage to the USA from RDG Tools who owns the Myford name.
That is a lot cheaper than a set of 'knackered' bearings or a load of high bollocks oil swilling about where it is only a nuisance.

Others might possibly disagreeo_O

Really it is up to the OP to decide whether to buy them or retain authenticity .

I've done my best. Time now to await the delivery of my newer Myford Super 7 B with the power cross feed.
One damned thing after another, rain, snow, winds, storm damage- and excuses.

Then coronavirus not withstanding, I'm down for a long cruise.

Look after the shop, meantime:D

Yes McMaster-Carr has them (drip feed oilers} but the closest thread size to Myford British size ? is the US 1/8" pipe size, witch is close but not good enough..

You own a late, make one or make an adapter for the one you can buy.
