Oiler tube kit
« on: May 17, 2015, 12:33:41 PM »

I'm sure I've seen somewhere a kit which contains an oiler tube which clamps around a prop tube after drilling a hole. Can anyone point me in the right direction, please?

Boss, have a look at Prestwich Models site, I seem to remember they did them for their race boats.

Thanks, chaps.
I've since found the earlier thread and checked the Chyldehall website. Their unit is a bit cumbersome, and 10 plus 4.95 P&P looks a tad steep to me. Prestwich have nothing like that. Couldn't find anything on the CMB website either. The US website looked like the best option but they are out of stock. I like Bryan Young's idea but 6mm Terry clips are like rocking horse dung round here.
BarryW, Wicker and TonyH seem to hold the key - is anyone at home there, guys? I don't fancy climbing into a 24" wooden hull with a blowtorch!

Dai
The prop tube is 6mm outside diameter. One oiler would be good; two would be ideal (I have two models). PM me with details, please.
