#216056 - Mon Nov 29 2010 08:49 PM Original Tokheim 36B Milkglass for top

By chance does anyone have any old original milkglass that fits a Tokheim 36B ? The pieces were either 5 by 12 5/8 or 5 by 10 1/8. More than likely, they would have no advertising on them.
If someone has a a piece of old milkglass thats bigger than that, I could cut it down to fit. Thanks--KEVIN

I have 2 pieces that came with the 36B porcelain pump that I bought and from the looks of the stains on the glass, I'd say they were around for a really, really long time. Since the pump had the logo on the panels, maybe they didn't feel the need to advertise on the top panels. Globe above it was probably enough?
Anyway, the pump came with it and I'm looking for more but it doesn't sound good--Huh!

Look for someone that does Stained/leaded glass, they might be able to order some.

I am sure you could have a Glass Shop cut you some New Frosted Glass for your pump.

Looks different than milkglass Jason. I could have T-way make any of that up but I'm going for the Original look and I believe that this pump came new with plain milkglass installed. Trivial point but one that I want to follow. Hopefully I find some!

George--Were they milkglass or just frosted glass? Milkglass will usually have a rough texture on one side.

I frost my own glass....frosted glass will have a little rough feel on the side it was frosted. unless it's frosted on both sides. I do this for some of the area glass companies since it is a special order and the cost....not much of a demand for it anymore....most customers are going with obsured glass now.

Koolmotor sent me a name and number for a small shop in his town that kind of specializes in this kind of thing! I talked with the guy today and he thought he could get nexactly what I need. The man seemed real knowledgable and was talking about opacity(light pass thru) of the glass and wanted it matched correctly!
I sent him the 2 pieces that I had and he should have them tomorrow. I'll keep you informed of what happens. If this guy has the answer, he would be a good one to keep in the old phone directory!

I had this young fellow cut 4 pieces of milkglass for me to put in the 36B top and it worked great! He has a small shop in Park River, North Dakota and he specializes in projects made from glass and has access to many different shades of glass colors. His name is Jason and he can be reached at Sundog Glass Design.
Phone 701-284-6621 (shop) or 701-331-1504 (cell).
He's a one man shop and from what I heard, hes a real go getter and gets the job done! Anyone needing some specialized glass should contact him!!

No its not dated, its simply colored glass AKA milkglass in this instance. I don't believe there has ever been any dating of plain glass panels, only ads that have been placed on them.
