Re: Porcelain Sign Dents advertologist 24 minutes ago
depends on what kind of dent - a bullet dent, you would drill a hole in the center of the dent
too relieve pressure then use a C clamp too press the metal flat

(you try using a hammer you have porcelain flying all over the place and you made it worse)

then braise the hole or fill it then touch it up - your touch up has too be dead on (color) or don't bother

as far as old touch up if you think you can do a better job re-do it .. ... cool

Re: Porcelain Sign Dents BrianH 40 minutes ago
You can try Nate...the risk is, every time you flex the metal, you take a risk of chipping more porcelain and damaging the sign. Unless the damage is really bad I would leave it alone. Regarding touch ups, that's up to you. If you like the touched-up areas better that way, leave them. I personally prefer not to buy touched-up signs as the touch ups are usually not very well done. If you don't like them, you can use paint stripper to remove the touch ups without damaging the porcelain.

Removing Handle on a Fry 117 BrianH 45 minutes ago
I need to remove the handle on my Fry 117 to install the access door and straighten the bent handle. I removed the "thumb screw" at the end of the pump shaft last night but it broke and left the threaded section still inside the pump shaft. Here's my question - do the threads only hold the thumb screw in place, or do those threads also thread through the base of the handle? I intend to drill out the remainder of the thumb screw, but I'm trying to determine if I can just use a gear puller to pull the handle off the pump shaft or if I need to drill those threads out first.

Thanks,

Has anybody removed dents from a porcelain sign successfully? Also, should old touch up paint be removed, or leave it?

Re: Lead filler on Bennett Doors? Oldgas 2 hours ago
When these pumps were made, lead was widely used in manufacturing and repair. Be careful with grinding or blasting leaded spots. Ingesting the dust is very harmful. You can carefully heat the lead to melt it out. Too much heat can warp the metal.

Crouse Hinds Art Deco Traffic Light W/6ft pole Old Racer 2 hours ago
$2000
Crouse Hinds Art Deco 3 way Traffic Light With 6ft Pole
It is complete and in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks on anything that I could see.
The light is 56 inches high to the top of the spear.
The light cabinet is 14 in by 14 in square.
With the shades side-to-side it is 27 in wide and 20 in deep front to back.
The pole is 6 feet tall.
After doing a lot of research I have not found one light that compares to it.
Everything I found are the hanging lights.
No pole lights that I could find for sale now or in the past so consequently everything that is out there does not have the spear on top or the pole mount on the bottom.
I don't think it would be a problem shipping the light.
I would remove the light shades, then I would pack the light by wrapping it in moving blankets and placing it on its back.
I have a heavy duty box that would accommodate the light.
I would place that on a 6 foot pallet and strap it down.
The pole would lay on the same pallet.
Buyer would of course pay for shipping.
That will run $500 to $600 depending on the destination.
​Fastenal might be the cheaper if available?
Located in Pickett, Wisconsin
OR COME AND PICK IT UP. No Charge.
Thanks

IMO $25-50. No graphics and grease cans aren't so great unless they are 1#, 5#, or 10# with graphics.
