The thread has hundreds of detailed photos of the tear-down and build up, and should be very helpful to anyone undertaking a similar project. The time you invest in going through this and studying the photos is well worth it, since it will save you time and help you avoid mistakes.

    Here's the starting entry: Meine "Werkstattgeschichten" - Seite 9 - Zerspanungsbude

    PS: if you don't read German I am sure Google Translate can render the pages in passable English. In any case the photos convey the bulk of the information.

    Sorry about the thread necro here, but I've been looking for photos of where a one-shot oiler fits and you linked this one into my FP2 thread.

    The push-type oil gun that came with my FP2 is shot. It'll do the business after I fill it, the remainder of the oil in the main compartment just dribbles out slowly. While I've ordered a replacement from Franz Singer, I'd like to fit my FP2 with a one-shot.

    Are you generally satisfied with your setup - did you end up changing it at all? Does the distributor do the business?

    Well...it's not exactly shot...that's how they all are

    Likely you have already seen this, but here is my setup in a first gen FP2.
    Pump is a "trico" pump bought new. Nice size fits the space well.
    Output double outlet fitting shop built. Feed through metering checks..(far side requires more oil)

    Input is through banjo fittings screwed directly into original oil fitting threads.
    Used clear tubing in order to see if oil i being delivered (no air bubbles)








    Works well. Might have a tendency to supply too much oil. (more than needed) as evidenced by the fall out of oil that ends up on the base top...
    Easily mopped up with shop toweling ...Figure more is much better than not enough.

    Cheers Ross

    I'm very happy with it, it's still in use and working nicely, and the slides and gearing of my machine are always well oiled. I typically give it a pump or two into each line at the start of an hour or longer work session. Every now and then I need to refill it, otherwise it requires zero time or attention. If I were doing it again I would probably add a third needle valve feeding a tube running across the support and connected to the oil nipple next to the X/Z shift lever.
