Which spindle? Some are threaded, some are pressed. Some are threaded into a bushing which is then pressed :)

Are these (on the spindle) threaded or does friction hold them in place.

Subject: [southbendlathe] oil fill tube: Name please
What is the name for the little tubes the have a spring loaded cap that are used at the oiling points on many lathes? I want the ones with a spring loaded cap not the spring loaded ball inside. If it were a grease fitting it would be called a zerk but I don't know what these are called. I need to order some and I have no idea what to look under.
Also if you know somebody who carries them that would be useful.
