Compound steam engine top
The top of the Steamship Engelbrekt compound steam engine. Note the lubricating cups with two cocks and an oil-container between them.
Turn the upper cock and fill the bulb with lubricating-oil, then close it and turn the lower cock so the lubricating-oil can trickle into the cylinder. Using a wet rag to cool down the oil-bulb will make the procedure easier to perform.

Engelbrekt, 1390 -1436, a Swedish rebel leader and later deputy head of State.
