Bergeon Automatic Oiler 1A Unpacking, Demonstration, Review

Recommended Posts

Like most of us, I look for perfection and oiling cap jewels with a regular oiler take a lot of practice and patience. I found myself having to reclean and re-oil over and over before I could approve my work. So, I decided to invest in an automatic oiler for this purpose and although very expensive I think it was worth every penny, and I was so happy about it that I decided to make a video about it. Please bear with me though as this was my very first attempt at video editing.

The 1A is great, makes cap jewel oiling a breeze and those fiddly Seiko train jewels which you're guaranteed to fit first attempt when dry but push out of place so you have to clean and re oil several times when you try to oil before placing.

May I make a recommendation which comes from having much practise with spilling things over the years doing this and model kit making.

Keep a lump of blu tack handy and place a blob on the bottom of any bottle you're decanting liquid from, until the cap is back on firmly.

9010 is very expensive to accidentally swipe across your desk. :)

Excellent advice, thank you! It's those little things that sometimes make all the difference!

Indeed, and I was actually feeling a bit worried while recording the video...:unsure:
