Edit: Apparently it's not like the title says. Find is the word I was looking for. So if you could find me one that would be fine. 


Like the title says. I need a couple of oil cans. The current fleet leak, or don't work, they all hit the trash can this past weekend in a fit of irritation. I'm tired of screwing with them. I use them for cutting, way, and general oils so I want 3-4 good quality oil cans that will last the rest of my life. 

A Google search came up with these. This is the only one I could find that no one hated. Since I was pissed off at the ones I had, I ordered one. From Germany because I couldn't find anyone that sells them in the States. It is outstanding. Swiss made, cast body, machined brass pump. It is a quality item and I'd love to have several more. The problem is, by the time it gets here, it's $65. 

I would love to find a quality but slightly cheaper American version.

Those are two I have that have labels. It appears you might have higher expectations than myself. The Goldenrod was from amazon and the Eagle was from my grandpa.

I use Goldnerod. Good USA made stuff. Works well for me and priced modestly.

The Goldenrod cans seem to have a love/hate following. Lots of people love them. A fair number hate them. Common complaints of leaking and the tops snapping off. That might be what I end up going with.

If  you can find one, a vintage brass Eagle #66 oiler is pretty nice.  They came with either a straight spout, or one that can be bent and adjusted.

I have one from McMaster I like.

Style B, although mine is slightly different - flexible nylon type of dispensing tube, and it's not flared on the bottom.  I also have Style C, which I don't like because I've never gotten an actual spray out of it.  It just dribbles out, but in a messy jumble rather than the nice drip of the other one.

NMNA, Have a look here:


Let us know.  BTW, these look suspiciously like Goldenrod oilers.
