Default Economy Oiler Parts

Hey Guys
This little gem came with Dr. Johns Lambert. It was installed on the dogbone governor.

It's missing the cap and we figure there's supposed to be a wick through the stem.

So my question is does any one have one they would care to share a picture or 2 of so we can get an idea of what it should look like??

Thanks

Jonathan

That type of oiler typically had a loose wire in the hole. The oiler would be mounted on a shaft and the pin would ride on the shaft. As the pin moved a little air would get by and into the glass reservoir which would let a little oil out. The pin should be slightly smaller than the hole, the smaller the pin the greater the feed. Or it could have had a needle valve in the hole.

Jonathan; No wick in the tube on the Economy. The missing top is a intricate piece with a sleeve that loose fits over the tube in the base. When running, the oil flys around and a small amount get by the sleeve and down the tube. The top has the name cast in it and would be a difficult part to recast. I have a brass and glass economy and a all brass ball shaped ecomomy. Both have fifferent tops. I have a friend who has the glass and brass economy with a broken glass. Get back to me and I will give you his name. Might make one good one out of the 2 if they are the same size.

Thanks to John D, Don S and JK we've got another Economy Oiler.
This one is a size bigger and the cap won't fit but atleast now we know what we're looking for.

Anyone happen to have seen one in their travels??

PS Patent Date is in 1893...
