That's exactly what's happening.

I've got one (I think...).  I inherited the rig from my father.  It's one of
those big stand-up ones (runs on 240).  It's got a little doohickey with a
glass cup on the bottom of it that appears to have some liquid in it... I
don't believe it's an oiler (although with my lack of knowledge on these
things it could be I suppose...)
