The drip oiler on my power hammer no longer provides a reliable flow of oil .   Any one have a suggestion for a specific replacement selection ?

What seems to be the issue? Does the oiler need cleaned and adjusted?

It is either on and flows or is off .   Will not drip.

i'm not familiar with this specific model but many oilers allow/require  packing with felt/cotton wool(poormans felt and easier to source) the denser the pack the slower the drip!

The Kuhn KO has a 26 Kg Tup weight, purchased new in 1992.  The oiler is OME "Celer" brand.  Ill give the cotton wool a try.   It has always been a problem to keep adjusted so just thought that I would give another brand a try, but it seems from the comments that my experience is more the standard than the exception

Thanks Ian.
