    Oil dispensing bottle for flares?

    I keep a small bottle of vac pump oil in my kit to use with flare connections and to lube up my bender, but I'm having issues with finding the appropriate container that won't leak. I need some kind of bottle that will let me drip out a few drops at a time, but that won't leak when squeezed or turned upside down or thrown in a bag with other tools. Any suggestions?

    Those have a cap that comes off right? I'm worried about losing it, would like something captive. Also, it seems like if it was knocking around in a bag it might get squeezed and leak, have you had any issues like that?

    That looks reasonably leak proof. Thanks, I'll try them out.

    I keep a zoom spout bottle in my tool bag. It doesn’t roll around, I have it tucked in snuggly. Never had it leak.

    I use Nylog. Has its own leak proof container.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    Just throwing this out there. My local mitsh rep has flat out said NO to nylog. I have still used it from time to time but I try to stick with POE or PVE.

    The 2nd is there to protect the 1st. DTOM

    Did he explain why, "No Nylog"?

    I can't use nylog to lube up my bender, too sticky. I might also look into an eye dropper bottle.
