An ultrasonic cleaner will make that lubricator spotless inside and out without any further disassembly.

Greetings Ironworker, Heed K-Tron and Ellis advice. The oiler you have in your possession is an early Powell Oiler and a difficult one to find indeed. I have only have come across a handful in many years. I searched along time for one when on the hunt. Does it have any data on the opposite side?? Good Luck. Enuf Said.

Thank you gentlemen for the advice, I wanted to put it on my Bovaird & Seyfang , when I got it the vent tube was off inside .
so I wanted to fix that as if you put oil in it it just pour out.

they must of soldered the upper reservoir to the dripper assembly . I plan to keep it in the work clothing , got some glass, will post more. no date on it about what year ?.
