Tom , Don't know if you are interested in it , but I have the old Gargoyle lubrication display cabinet . Very early, this is the one that would take the square lettered oil cans. Five center shelves for the appropriate letter oil , 2 display pockets on each side and a display rack on top of them for bottles. Cool cabinet , out of Rochester NY. Ron
Hello All, It's 65 degrees here today.....it's the nice before the cold comes again with the threat of freezing rain Sunday morning. Evidently that threat worsens as you go north. Going to enjoy today and open the window when I get home for kitty to enjoy for the afternoon, as it might be a while before I will open them again for him. He loves to watch the birds and anything that moves. Have a good evening, Darin
In the 70s today and partly sunny with gusty winds. Rain on the way in the evening. Filled a couple 5 gallon buckets with rocks that I picked out of the expanded garden area this past week. I put them over in the creek bed, but they must be crawling back at night. Can't seen to ever get rid of rocks in the garden areas.
Have a great Friday the 13th out there in Oldgasland
I'm not a collector so I don't know much about vintage gas & oil. I acquired these older oil cans with the boxes. They were in a shed whose roof collapsed many years ago. The boxes protected the cans so the cans are in pretty good shape but the boxes are not. Are the boxes collectible, or are they in such rough shape they don't add much to the cans? I also got 2 grease drums. About 2 feet high and 14" in diameter. Any ideas on the value of a full box of cans, and the drums? The drums true value to me is the grease inside. They are about 2/3s full. Thanks for any wisdom.
We need to remember situations like this to remind us of all the good guys out there (the oldgassers who chimed in and the guy refunding your money). A lot of times you only hear the negative stuff so this is good to hear.
Busy day in the shop here today. I am getting ready to head out to the cabin tonight, we are going to install some new LVL beams in the basement so that I dont have to have posts down there anymore. I looked at the forecast for this weekend out there and it said "snow accumulations between 1 and 2 feet". YIKES.
Dang, that is one nice sign, can understand why the cost may be high. I'm more of a collector so I have learned that sometimes you just have to step up if you want it in your collection. My guess would be high teens.
I've got an old service station work bench/tool cabinet. I think it was from a Hess station. Who manufactured these things? It's beautiful, I'm wondering if i should restore it or keep it as is. I'll post some pics when i have the ability.
Plan on attending. I am always looking for Paint related items, especially SPRAY PAINT items. Old cans (No need to be working) displays, signs whatever. Bring what you have, I make fair offers. Also looking for trasportaition collectibles pertaining to trains in the NY, NJ, PA area. Subway, freight, passanger etc. Message me if you have something so I make a point to see you. I try to stop at every table.
