Chain oiler V2 (2.0 version)

Picture of Chain oiler V2 (2.0 version)
This is my second chain oiler, the 2.0 version. Chain oilers are used to lubricate mechanical pieces automatically, so I made one for my own bike. It has several advantages.
• Longer life of the chain.
• Constant lubrication, ideal for rain days.
• And the possibility of use a lighter oil, like SAE 5 or 10, ideal for dusty roads.
