If somebody can post up a picture, I'll dig through my stash and see if I can help.

Don't have one.

I've been looking for all of those for about 8 months.
Good luck to you, and if you find a source, link me  ;)

One of our members here, MEBears, picked up some Alby oilers back in 2016 and several of us here picked up some from him. I have no idea if he still has any to sell, but that's about the last time I saw any in any sort of quantity.

He had black ones, clear ones, and beige ones. The beige oilers had the application wire, (like the ones pictured on Yooper). It looks to be a piece of stiff piano? wire, heated and inserted into the plastic lid. Only the beige and the white ones had the wire in the cap. (That I saw personally, anyway.) I can't tell by the two pics on Yooper if the white oiler and the yellow-ish oiler are the same oiler, or if there's actually a white and a yellow-ish colored oiler.

I have a fair collection of cleaning kits. I'll look through them and see if I can spot either type of Alby cleaning kit.

I'm afraid I've struck out on Alby slings. (The hand-sewn-in-country style that's so hard to find. I've been looking for one for mine since forever. Mine came with a well-used Chinese wide sling with leather tabs. And since it is actually correct for these Alby's, I'll use it until the day I find one of the sewn Alby slings. (The Grail).  yahoo1

You might try sending MEBears a PM to check availability. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Good luck on your hunt for them!

Good memory FC!   thumb1

I bought some from MEBears and populated my Albys with correct oilers.  I honestly haven't seen any since (not that I've looked).

I had an extra one that I put in the pay it forward box.  Someone out there got it.  For slings I'm in the same boat as you.  Using some well worn Chinese on the Albys but would love to get a 'more correct' Alby sling for it.  Just haven't seen any pop up, they are getting to be as difficult to find as Romy dog collar slings.

RM, what did the oiler you put in the box look like?

I'll double check the stuff I got from the box as I didn't check that stuff.

Honestly don't remember.  I had white tan and black, likely the white one was odd man out... dntknw1
