Doesn't sound at all strange to me, it makes perfect sense. It may well quiet
them a bit too.
This would work better on sleeve bearings than ball bearings, and would work
best on the bronze "oillite" bearings whose porous bronze material will hold
the oil well.
I have used hypodermic syringes to inject oil into bearings. I have a large
supply of such syringes, since I'm diabetic.
