My National Model 70 - Fri Sep 06 2002 09:00 PM

Hi, just thought I would show off my newly resorted National 70. I'm sure the Polly brand is not "period" to this type of pump but I thought black and green would look cool. Anyway, it's all original except for the cylinder and globe. My wife even let me build the deck around the pump (to this day I still don't know how I got away with that)! This type of model has leaves under the cylinder which are very unique along with the dial on the front and arrows that move up and down depending on how many gallons are pumped. I will post some better shots latter if anyone would like to see them. Thank you everyone on the message board for helping me along the way to restore my first pump!

Credon, Nice job on your resorted National 70. When i started in this hobby my wife hated it but now 3 years later... i have a basement done up with it and now starting the pole barn and she seems to like it. It is great when your wife lets you do something like that with the deck. Great job on the pump... i like it done up in Polly!
