Last Saturday I picked up this Manzel Brothers company Buffallo, NY oiler at an estate sale. What do you think, I could run tubing all over the car and not hassle with oiling everything. Seriously, if you know what it is for let me know.

Gas tractor engine, something on the lines of a 35-70 Minneapolis?

A friend of mine had one on his big Aultman Taylor tractor. Steam traction engines also used them as well as some stationary steam and gas engines. Its size and number of feeds, indicates it is for a very large engine. Lots of different manufactures used that style of oiler, so it is desireable for lots of different collectors.

Pretty serious oiler 20 channel, maybe some big engine, marine or stationary. Dave in Bellingham,WA

So I guess it is not ideal for a model T;)

This looks like what a 35-70 Minneapolis used. I just happen to have this one too.




I got both of these in the last month. Until I find something else to do with these I guess they will be conversation pieces.
