Pen Oiler


Say what?

From the website:

    Stamp out squeaks with the Precision Pen Oiler

    “Squeak!” goes the screen door.

    “Squawk!” goes the hinge.

    “Squee!” goes the bike chain.

    Pretty damn annoying, all that rusty racket in your house or garage.

    But things’ll work a lot smoother and quieter, with a drop of oil or two from the Pen Oiler.

    It clips to your pocket and works just like a pen: push the button and out comes oil, one precise drop at a time.

    Oil compartment is O-ring sealed, so it won’t leak.

    Rugged brushed aluminum finish.

    5½" long.

    You may use it every day — even on things that don’t need oiling!


Is that an oiler in your pocket, or are you just glad...?

Those who reside in metal-free environments might want to inquire as to the origin of such sounds as "Squeak," "Squawk" and "Squee."

But I digress.

Note to file: Get a supply of these for the Christmas stockings of my friends over at MAKE magazine.

$12.50 (oil not included — except for Flautist, who will receive, from me, a lifetime supply at no additional charge).

Wait a minute. Something just occurred to me when I was out slaving in the yard, all excited about my first shipment of oil.

Oil? Oil?! And what else was it -- some hamburger meat, I think, and some hand towels? These free included life-time supply items are distinctly low-end, it seems like. When do I get the free, included lifetime supplies of designer furniture and jewels and cars and TVs and cat food and stuff? Not that I'm not grateful and all, but still...

Make it Hoppe's #9 oil. I like the smell.
