    Default Italian one shot oiler fix

    I have a Milano oiler on my Rambaudi mill. It has been leaking through the stem on the handle since I bought it. I was expecting an O ring to replace but can not find a way to remove the spring loaded piston and handle from the cylinder. It may have been removed and put back on with the air hole pointed down and I will try moving it to face the top but wondering if anyone has ideas on taking it apart. No set screw, pins, or flats for a wrench. The piston seals look good so I don't think it was leaking through them/ The brass cylinder threads tight. Davedscn3805.jpgdscn3806.jpgdscn3807.jpg

    Right off i would guess that the handle is threaded to the shaft......Maybe sealed in place (Loctite?)
    Try a little heat to break any bond and give you some advantage.
    Pull the shaft out and grip it using some vise grips with the jaws shielded with a piece of aluminum or brass to protect the shaft.
    Cheers Ross
