I use a plain medical glass syringe with a fine blunt tip needle for
that.  I've also found that orthodontic wire cutters work very well as
flush cutters (and almost as inexpensive as the regular electronics kind).

For a light oil, I dig into my supply of brass instrument valve oil.
All types are available, from regular petroleum-base to some pretty
exotic synthetics.  Go to, say, Amazon and search for "Trumpet valve oil".
