This may be a dumb question, but I'm asking anyway. I now have a prewar Bridgeport 1928 that I have already posted about (GEG Stamp inside receiver). I want to keep it original so what would have been in the butt stock storage area in 1941 and WWII?

I know theyd have kept an Oiler in the buttstock with the felt O pad to prevent it from rattling around

IIRC, inside the buttstock void, there should be three of the felt donuts used with the oil cans having a substantially orthorhombic shaped body as depicted in gijive's post.

 

MHO, YMMV, etc.

Tomorrow I'm going to petition the official Scrabble committee to allow more tiles in the tray, just so I can play "orthohombic".
