Should the front and back oiler for an AEG GB2 have springs and wicks in them?
Oiler is currently on bottom ,is the housing on upside down

Thanks

Google images. Looks like grease cups ruled.

My early AEG uses GREASE cups front and rear.  The top part is fully filled with grease then started to screw onto the bottom part.  Occasionally a quarter turn or so of the top part forces more grease into the bearing.  There is no wick of spring on the inside of the cup.






Another AEG, not mine, that uses what look to be grease cups.

Just to add a belt to the braces (suspenders) already sent, here is an extract from an AEG brochure from 1905 covering all of the AEG models from GB0 to GB3 and WB0-WB3. The greaser is shown very definitely vertically downwards on top of the bearings.
The brochure scan was very kindly supplied to me by AFCA member Ralf Augenstein and was essential in correct cage reproduction.

Heck of a fan Jim. MOMA finally let it go?
I bought this at Asheville FF. Came out of the P.P. collection. The seller and I both thought AEG. Maybe Steve's fan smaller younger less adorned brother?

I believe that this is a BEWE German fan.
It is missing a central cage badge which is a rhombus shape (diamond) cast badge.

I turned the rear housing right side up  ( oiler up ) and the blade turns poorly.

Replace it back to upside down and blade spins freely.


Any suggestions


Thanks
