Hi Roy,
I use an aerosol chain oil on my 1932 Scott. I never spray it on a moving chain as it is too messy and half the oil flies off in strings in the process as the carrier mixed in the oil has not had time to evaporate. I spray the oil on a short section at a time and turn the engine with the kickstarter to reach the next section. I do this about every 200 miles and don’t have any problems with chain wear/stretch. This way takes longer to do but does the job correctly and you do not need copious amounts of oil.
