So I've never used an air scribe before.  I've read everything in the forum about the cp9361, and I'll probably buy an Aro for detail work.  But, the instructions that came with this thing suck, I can barely read them. Really my question is about oil.  Where do I put the oil, how often, and what kind of oil do I use?  Thanks in advance!

I rarely iol my air scribes.  Only When they start acting up.  Others oil theirs every day.

I use a couple of drops of air tool oil in the end of scribe where you plug in scribe to compressor.  It will work it's way up the hose. Worked well for me so far. Good luck, let's see some pics of your work

This is what I do as well. 3 or 4 drops of tool oil for every 8-10 hours of use.

Im like most others.  about 3 drops at the end of the hose on the scribe about every 8 hours of use.   Also, I too have heard a lot about the PC9361.  Any way you can take a pic of the stylus for me?  Interested in seeing how the tip is?  I may be of some help?

The stock tip on the CP9361 is quite blunt. I find this to be great for bulk removal but horrid for getting anywhere near a fossil as it introduces much more stress on the specimen.

That thing will put the hurt on a piece of matrix.

What kind of scribe is this? It looks like an Aro with a longer front end.

Yea it's a modified Aro that you can buy here in the UK.
