Oiled my pliers

OH GOD O H GOD OH GOD
HOW THE SHIT DO I GET IT TO STOP BLEEDING

>Be me
>Get pliers out of LE BOCKS
>Decide to clean with mineral spirits then oil
>Clean OK
>Dry OK
>Oil Application OK
>Error
>Every time I extend then clasp the pliers the pivot oozes black oil
>Have done this 10,000 times it still oozes

How/when does this stop? It looks like this image but just keeps gushing out. Then it slows, then I wipe it, and more comes out!

      I would like to listen to what you have to say. This oil needs a good name behind it.

      Throw your pliers hard onto concrete, then throw them into a very fine siltlike sand. Work them back and forth a few dozen times. No oil. Will last for decades.

      How exactly is this bait?
      Im not OP, but have you never actually oiled up a pivot on a solid joint pair of pliers.
      It does seem to leak oil forever, and the shit does come out as black. Not sure if its grease or remnants of the manufacturing process or what.

      But they all do it, and they all seem to stay wet way longer than you would think.

        Keep flushing with a solvent and working them until the black shit quits coming out. joint should be smooth as silk after that.

          Im not sure its really worth the effort, OP just needs to ignore it and understand its pretty normal operating procedure with most pliers.
          Shit doesnt ever need oiled unless you fucked it up anyways

            That is true. I've bought back some pretty fucked up pliers from extremely rusty and frozen up to usable condition though. Those definitely needed some oil. Sometimes you'll end up with some in boxes of random tools from auctions, or find a pair of pliers on the ground that has been lost for years.

        If oil is oozing out than shit has a harder time getting in. It's just one of those little things that you have to watch out for if using them on anything that could stain.
        Keep a piece of kitchen roll or a rag handy if it's an issue

        >WD-40 is not a lubricant
        For this application, WD-40 is fine. It's a very thin oil which won't lubricate a spinning shaft or bushing worth a damn. But it does lubricate and displace water. Which is good for tools.

          Its only "fine" if you use it as a solvent and then go back after its dry and put an oil in there.

          My negus, they're just pliers. As long as something keeps the pivot point from rusting, they're good as new. Why would you need a proper lubricant for such little movement?
          Are you trying to use the pliers as a shakeweight?

          >As long as something keeps the pivot point from rusting,
          WD40 is going to dry within the hour and leave a gritty white film, as per its actual use.
          >Why would you need a proper lubricant for such little movement?
          It really is a wonder, why would you need a lubricant on metal to metal bearing surfaces.

            I use WD on my rebar pliers and they stay perfectly smooth until the next time I have them in my pouch while it pisses rain. Then I just spray again the day after
            You're really overthinking this

    The reason it is black is because the oil is working out all the filth that has worked into there and all the metal dust created by friction from the joint, you did not actually get it clean. It will stop seeping when either the oil or filth runs out. All the filth allows the joint to hold onto more oil than it needs, add more oil and keep working it until it runs out clean and then remove excess and it should quit seeping out pretty quick.

    heat it until the oil boils off
