Are they in Australia?
No. But if you're reading this post from Australia, the assortment of oil cans will be right side up, and the large oil can will be oil tight....

The Goldenrod oilers, and the Mcmaster Carr oilers are both the same. I have seen them at Tractor Supply also.

The company that makes them is https://www.dutton-lainson.com/categories.php?cat=31 Located in Hastings NE

Storing them that way doubles the available shelf space.

YouTube's Keith Appleton recommends these oilers. Blackgates Engineering is in Great Britain and accepts PayPal which helps with the exchange rate and shipping. I purchased a small mechanical lubricator, rivets, and a coal fire set from them. I emailed them my order and they returned an invoice and a PayPal link.

p.s., Blackgates 151 page catalog can be downloaded from here: http://www.blackgates.co.uk/CAT_Blackga ... e_2019.pdf

I have the "C" model...and while a great can it did fail once....the components fell apart inside the can. It was easy to fix though....
