     Hi Guys 
                Made a good find Saturday and almost thought it was a piece of small pipe. Turns out it is a 1920 sheakespeare one drop oiler. I had never seen or heard of one before. After about an hour on the net I did locate one example of the oiler. I havent found what its worth yet but it is rare. I did get it on video but havent edited the footage yet.

That seems in nice order FST . We had something similar in British army, today they are made of plastic but the shape/design has not changed much.

Any ideas what yours is made of?

Nice find, I presume it has something to do with oiling guns

FST,
Also used in military for precision oiling of certain weapons and machinery.
