What is the correct drip oiler for a 1924 FM Dishpan Oiler and where could one be acquired?

After further investigation, I have located the correct drip oiler photo but still have not located its manufacturer, any help with who made these, and if one could be located for sale would help me finish the restoration of my 1924 F-M Dishpan

I can't help with who made it. FM themselves maybe?
Alpha DeLaval used a nearly identical one but it was all brass. Have a tin oiler like they all had on my '28 Z red-line.
I have another in the garage that looks almost identical. However instead of an open 'view hole' with the little twisting tin cover (I assume to keep water out), it has a glass tube, more like a brass oiler. I'm not sure if it's FM, DeLaval, or what. But it looks exactly the same otherwise. Maybe they changed through production? I really don't know. Probably paid too much for it at the swap I got it from, but I rarely see them. If you haven't found one yet drop me a line.

I was told years ago that they can be rare. Often the engine owner would throw them away in favor of the brass and glass ones so he could better monitor the oil.

There’s one on EBay right now for 75.00.

Not Mine. Will come under a search for dishpan oiler. Sorry I haven't learned to create links with the new computer
