#3 is the size of the oiler. Sentinel is its identifying name. The Paragon is nearly identical except that it has a check ball in the base and a vent tube for cylinder use. The Fig. 1300 is basically a catalog number to identify later Lunkenheimer oilers. The early models just used the name. Hope this helps.

I believe the Sentinel uses brass stampings; the Paragon uses brass castings. Paragon has swiveling cast fill; Sentinel a threaded plug. Paragon much higher quality.

Both the early and late sentinals(heavy pattern and 1300 series)use brass castings. The 1300 series is a little lighter and simpler.A well made oiler for machine bearing use.Rob
