    If it were my problem, I would boil the parts in a strong solution of lye combined with mechanical agitation to make sure all sides are exposed, then pressure wash.

    They might be the bees knees, but their Web page has no useful description of how they work so how would a buyer know what to order? Or is it normal to buy expensive tooling and then run experiments...

    I have a few of those ball oilers on my lathe that don't seem to pass oil at all. Is the right solution to pull the oiler and replace it?
