Adjustable Oilers

OILER

 

These oilers are scaled down versions of those prized by collectors even today.  They were widely used to oil bearings on a continuous basis by metering the oiling rate.  The OIL1 has an adjusting needle to control the oiling rate as well as a transparent housing to show the amount of oil remaining.  The OIL2 has the same capabilities plus a screw in plug to prevent dirt getting into the oil during operation plus a sight port which allows the operator to visually see the actual oiling rate.  Threads are Model Taper Pipe.

OIL CUP - Brass

Designed as a way to apply oil to a bearing and then cover the oil passage in order to keep dirt out of the bearing.  The lids screw into the body and are knurled to allow ease of use.

GREASE CUP – Brass

 

These grease cups are a scaled down version of those widely used on all machinery in the age of steam to apply grease under pressure to a bearing.  They work just like the original; put grease in the cap, screw down on the body and grease is applied under pressure to the bearing.  They have knurled tops and do a good job of adding the additional detail to dress up an engine. The oil cups have a threaded lid, which will keep the oiler and bearing clean when running.  Oil is put into the oiler, which then drains into the bearing.  All are made of C360 brass.   Diameters given are across the rim or cap.
