    My naive understanding was grease for ~200rpm and less and oilers for more (usually anyway). The question here is if the grease cup was original or if someone somewhere along the way got tired of it...

    Some possible downsides:

    It will settle, perhaps substantially as the wood decomposes and compacts. This will be ongoing over some number of years. Odds are good that the settling will be uneven...

    Anyone else feel like they're back in the 90's again?

    Not to badly, mine is borg "white wood" which is not as nice as pine and it hasn't been a real problem to speak of. The edges have rounded over a smidge but seem to have mostly stabilized at some...

    I've been leaving them, but hollowing the inside of the tenon out a smidge under the theory than it helps relieve the stress. No idea if its the right thing or not, but my success rate has been more...

    Naively it seems that the tenon would have more strength here if oriented in the other direction. I'm guessing it was done this way mostly for the convenience of how you're orienting the pins? I'm...
