Finally a simple solution to bulk nipple oiling prior to builds. A perfect companion to our Shuffler and Shuffler Tray, this clever kit trumps many primitive solutions used by fast builders everywhere.
A perfect sized jar in eco-friendly PP to fill halfway with oil. What oil? Your choice. Pedro’s, Triflow, Boeshield, DuMond Tech, there are many candidates. How about something organic and good smelling? By the way, spoke thread preps are not harmed by pre-oiling and post-assembly wicking compounds still work great.
Our stainless steel strainer holds up to several hundred nipples. The handle is a double threaded, 14g spoke attached with 4 stainless locknuts. Submerge a batch of nipples and later hang the strainer on the jar edge for draining. Once drained, dump the batch into your handy Shuffler (or equivalent).
