    My Bernina store has pens that have a really fine tip you can use. They aren't cheap, but so much easier than the little tubes.

    I think JoAnn's carries it.

    Oops. Here's a link to the one I actually have, made by Dritz, and says it has the zoom spout:

    I use this also, and I have never had a problem. Hancock Fabrics also sells it.

    I've used the pull-out nozzle one and got oil everywhere. This is the one I use now, and I LOVE it. It's very exact and you put only as much as you want in the machine.

    speaking of oil, can the oil that is used to oil hair cutters and electric razors be used to oil sewing machines?

    Sadly I just recently learned about removing the bobbin casing thing, and oiling the machine... but I do not have sewing machine oil and of course forgot to get some. I am sure tomorrow I will start sewing on my scrappy fence and want to make sure everything is in tip top shape and oiled... thanks for the help

    Hardware stores used to carry little oilers with a long spout. My husband has an antique oiler with a trigger and a long, flexible spout. Now that I think about it, he may not have it much longer. 8-)
