Hay everyone I have two 55gal. Oil lubsters and I was wondering if I could pic some brains about restoring them. One is standard and the other is Mobil.

Thanks a lot for the help

John, Welcome. Here's how this site works.....you post a request for information showing pictures of your project. Ask the questions you'd like responses to. Someone usually answers in short order. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

Read the 2 Sticky - Instruction at top of this page;
http://oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=1&page=1
IF that doesn't work for you, go to the TEST Forum & learn how to use Image Shack.

SLOW DOWN, just cause a car will do 100+, you have to learn how to control it 1st.

Why does he need a picture, I believe we all know what a lubster looks like. Just tell him how you restored one of them.

Don't worry Oilcanman87, I'm 19 as well. It took me awhile to figure out this great site and it has helped me a lot.

Here is a link from 2007 with 7 pages to look through. Lots of lubesters to look at.

USE A BIGGER HAMMER, better yet throw the hand held as Far AS YOU CAN Towards the River/Pond [or read the instructions on How To Use This Device].

The biggest problem with posting pics is the device you are using to acquire the pics.

Buy a decent camera, say a Nikon, where you can set the camera where you can post it directly on the site using Image Shack. You'll never regret buying a "real" camera.

Also, buy a stand alone scanner, something that again you can set the size you want, "before" you scan the item. I suggest a Epson.

With good equipment you should be able to put a pic on this site in less than a minute.

Oilcanman87 it's your first day and you're overwhelmed?

How do you think the rest of us feel? I was away all day and get on this site and all I'm seeing is posts by you all over the place asking all kinds of questions. You're overwhelming me....

Like DB has stated a number of times....slow down!

Spend a few days getting to know the site and familiarizing yourself with it. Rome wasn't built in a day!

Hi Oilcan,
Welcome to the site...
Here is a link to a lubester that I restored a while back.
Go to page #2 and read the post of how I did it.

http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Main=30944&Number=195573#Post195573

A few people had asked me to post the process, I know your not doing a display case but this will help you in getting it ready to restore.
If you have any questions feel free to PM.


Looking for anything JENNEY OIL OR GAS

Oooo my new member post was too late. You have stepped in poo! You have also been met with kindness and jokesters, all of who are trying in their way to help.

Please post your progress on your restoration in 'stories and showcases' when your project is done. Everyone has trouble at first posting the pictures. You will figure it out in the end! smile

Again, welcome!

Welcome to oldgas oilcanman.

Your handheld will work just fine, the senior citizens on here don't realize the cameras on most smart phones are as good or better than most stand alone cameras. Uploading from your phone is easier as well. I like the portability and convenience of using the smart phones so just keep working with it...you'll figure it out.
