I really recommend adding a sight tube so you know how much is left in the tank.
A little late, but this is what use. It's zip tied to 3/4" square tube so I can move the whole stack together when I move the post for different bars, the square tube nests perfectly in the post. It also adds enough height such that I can still use the full height of the post adjustment without any fussing with the hose. Yellow valve is throttled for flow rate, red valve is the on/off.

Thinking of making an oiler.
Do you guys get a mess with the oil still in the tube continuing to drip out after you finish a cut? I may place the shutoff valve close to the bar.
I turn the whole mill sideways every 1-2 cuts to touch up the chain. Anyone had problems with oil leaking out? I belief as long as the breather hole is small enough this shouldn't be an issue.
yep - it also makes a bit of a mess in a vehicle is the valve leaks.
I did have rubber cap I used to push over the end of the drip tube but it perished - extra valve would be a good idea.
On drip placement-
Cutting edge before the bar tip sproket?
Im going to try a close drip before I decide to drill into bar.
Its not super critical provided its on the bar/chain interface after the chain has gone at least 90º around the nose.
I like to match the drip point with the small gaps in between the chain and the bar.
