Default What Brand of High Stem Oiler is this?

So far everyone has said Detroit/Michigan Oiler. If you look very close to the drawling and the a turn of the century photograph there is a round ball on top of the long stem adjustment. The sight glass is also big and oblong. 2 items not found on a Detroit. If anyone has this oiler in about a No.5 I will be at Portland!
Thanks!

Looks like a Michigan to me, but obviously just a guess.

It is a Michigan for sure. Pictured is one of mine- Michigan Lubricator Co. Detroit marked 133 on the lower hex. About a big #4 or small #5 size with 1/2" pipe thread. This one is an engine oiler but they also came as plain drippers. Fred

Those ball on top of the knob oilers were used on early horizontal IHC Famous engines. I have a couple of them. Rob

I haven't looked at all of my Michigan oilers but don't recall seeing any patent dates on them. Any body else have a Michigan oiler with a patent date? Fred

Some of them have I think an 1888 patent date on them. Rob

Rob, are either of your oilers a No.5 or No.6 with 3/8 pipe?
