Does this apply to top oilers as well?

I don't see why you couldn't use that felt. I would roll it up to the
proper diameter and cut it square. Don't make it too tight. Should
work just fine.
I changed the oilers in my SB9 with new ones from SB when they were
still in business. I posted the photo with a ruler for dimensions here:
The white end is a foam that compresses for spring action. The black
end goes against the spindle.
I suspected that the Workshop model is very similar.
