The hole that is by the front bearing returns oil to the reservoir that is slung off the shaft and slingers on the blade. At least, that is what it is supposed to do if it isn't clogged up. It has nothing to do with lubricating the beveled gears in the neck. The oscillating gears were greased at the factory and short of some disassembly, probably never saw grease again. Same for the front gear housing and worm that is on the rotor shaft. The Collar Oscillator wasn't around very long, somewhere in the year 1914. Find some lub instructions around then for a stationary fan and you'll probably be fine. JMO
