  1. I just got around to changing my original, now nearly 3 year old, oilers and decided to treat myself and get a Bergeon set (regular not the ergonomic) rather than a like-for-like replacement the cheap(er) generic ones I have been using to date. I must say that I much prefer the tip design on these new ones over the ones I have been using. However, the colour of the oilers is different, meaning that they no longer match the oil pots (which I just re-filled of course?!?), so now not only do I have to remember that the blue oiler is now my HP1300 and not the black one, but I also have to remember that it goes in the hole behind the black pot holder not the blue one. And the same for the yellow and red and .... No question, just needed to vent! Just FYI, I have gone back to the pin type oilers after trying to use auto-oilers for almost a year, I found the auto oilers rather clumsy and difficult to apply the correct amount of lubrication, you end up with a uniform slug of oil which most of the time is either too much or too little. You can calibrate them, but then what do you calibrate them to, you could calibrate for one watch, but then on your next watch you will inevitably need a little more here or a little less there, so they are never calibrated for the movement you are working on at the time and you end up having to try and do half a stroke, which is an art in itself. I am sure that there is a lot of user error, but for me the advantages do not outweigh the additional work in using and setting them up.
  2. Hi gurus, I went and bought myself a set of automatic oilers, as I never really felt I had a clue how much oil I was putting into the pivot holes. Now I'm a bit lost in what oils to actually fill them with! The 1a for incablocs is easy enough I suppose, I'm planning to fill it with 9010. The number 5 for train pivots and bearings I suppose would be D5 or similar, but the 2a? Should I put 941 in it and use it only for pallets then? Can't help feeling I splurged recklessly without a plan on these, but how can I now best use them? Any experience out there? Stian
