Time to start reciting home run stats and batting averages!

Step one: tell hot lady about new wet banana toy you have that you want her to try

Step two: recover from facial slap

Step three: sit at end of said backyard death trap/toy

Step four: receive beautiful woman as she fails to put on the brakes and runs smack dab into you.

Looks like a knock-off of the Slip 'n' Slide.

Comedian Dane Cook had a riff on that (my paraphrasing): "Remember the Slip 'n' Slide? Sometimes dad would forget to check the yard for rocks. They should've called it Slip 'n' Bleed From the Aaaanus."

Sick!!!

“Mom on the Wet Banana“ can you even say that here?

When I’m applying small amounts of oil I use a sewing machine needle, it has small hole for the thread and a slight channel for the thread but the point is so sharp it’s easy to control minute amounts of lube.

THAT is a great tip! I'm going to make a little tool (wooden handle) with a needle in the end.

GREAT idea, hushnel.

It is a great tip, in a hardware kind of way “o)

I got the idea from an old WWII gun oil tin, it has an applicator that is just a thin rod with a flattened tip attached to the screw-on top. Plus I’ve been servicing a lot of old sewing machines the last couple of years.

Geno, install it in a cork that fits a bottle. Protect the tip and keep it lubricated all at the same time.

Sewing machine needle is a cool idea.

Here's another: Watch repair people use watch oilers to dispense the incredibly tiny amounts of oil needed to lubricate mechanical watches. Size of the drop that will cling to the tip is determined by the size and shape of the tip, so they come in various sizes.

Dear God. This is great. I need some of those for no good reason.

Now back to hyper sexual backyard toy names.

Make them out of stainless steel guitar strings. I have made different oilers similar to these. The one linked below is copper wire the head is about the same for the gun oil tin and perfect for oiling sewing machines.

Simple stuff.

One of the tricks we used to get oil down into machinery onto a moving part that was very difficult to reach was to use a length of steel safety wire.

You straighten out a length of it and place the end of the wire against the part you need to oil, with the held end higher than the business end. All that's left to do is place a few drops of oil onto the wire.

Gravity makes the drops run down the wire and jump onto the part.

It's simple science, but when you see it for the first time it's like witchcraft.
