Welcome, I plan on going to chickasha, hopefully the rain doesn't affect it to much
Im loading the trailer now. Heading to chickasha in 5hrs. Mine will be the 4th booth on the row against the north fence. (Basically in the NW corner, next to the vendor drive-in entrance. Nextdoor to a lamp-maker.) Are you getting a booth? Regardless come by and say hello
What the others said, its a Sinclair can. I have a quart oil can that is similar. Don't have a grease can like that. More interest probably to a Sinclair collector than a general can collector due to the plain look to it.
The can is "plain" ugly, imho. Thanks for the info
It's been many years since I'v been to Hershey Fall show, but I keep in touch with those that do go regularly. I'm told that most prices were out of reason and a lot of items didn't sell because of it. How do you other attenders evaluate this year's show? Appears to me that Face book prices are getting out of hand also. Is all okay in the hobby?
Hey Jim, You better be prepared for your next pump because when you get this one fixed up you'll be hooked and looking for your next project. In the hobby we call these the "art deco globe holder". Original is the best way to go (by the way I don't have any spares right now). They are not impossible to find but can be a bit pricey. Because of the way the original is made it takes a rather large hole to be cut. When you get ready to make the cut I'd be happy to send you a template made from an original top. You don't really need one but it might make you feel better before you start cutting. Remember what they say... measure twice, cut once...lol. Enjoy your pump, Tom.
Hi Jim, If you choose to add a globe by using the original globe holder then it will require cutting through the top. The globe holder was offered to companies who asked for them. Nothing wrong with fitting one to your pump to make it the way you want. Good Luck, Paul www.severngaspumps.com
