Photo Oiler/Grease cup question

Here is a picture of my latest restoration. It's a highly modified Sprout-Waldron 16" stone burr grist mill. It does not use grease cups but has a small chamber with a lid on it to oil/grease the bearings. You can see them in the picture. I have no experience with these type greasers. Should they be packed with something soaked in oil? If so, what should I use for packing? Any information on how these oilers/greasers function and what I need to do to make sure they are functioning properly will be appreciated.

That kind of oiler uses a piece of felt saturated with oil. Not too critical.

Take care - Elden

Stuff the boxes with cotton dryer lint, soak good with SAE 30 or heavier oil and have fun! Do not use lint from synthetic clothing. Most are related to plastic, and heat and oil are detrimental to this kind of material.
