Photo Lets See Your Early 3 Handle Drip Oilers!

Here is my early Essex #4 oiler.

Now lets see some Banners, Majors or any other oiler with at least three handles!

Here's a Consolidated Brass Company oiler. The filler handle looks to have had a run in with a hacksaw at some point.








I guess this one really isn't that early.....

Also did an Essex version using the same casting.

I am not familiar with these oilers. What is the bottom handle for? I assume the middle one controls the flow and the top is the fill.

The top handle is the filler, middle is the feed, and the bottom handle is a shut off.

Here's my 3 handle oiler. It has no name on it, but I'm thinking American Lubricator Co.

In post #9 anyone have any guesses to the brand name of the 4-post oiler as shown in the 3 photos? Are there any telltale clues? There is no number or markings on it anywhere. Itís a very quality brass fitted housing and appears to be of age.
