Re: Spindle bearing losing oil
I haven't seen one but my guess is it enhances capillary action to
draw oil back to the sump. There is a parallel in my fountain pen
hobby. L.E. Waterman improved fountain pen design to the point that
they were a practical instrument in 1884. He cut several narrow
grooves in the bottom of the slot in the ink feed so that the ink
would flow down the grooves and air could go back into the ink
reservoir as the ink is used up. Without these grooves the pen skips
and then makes rorschach(sp?) tests.
