Spray paint rattles when you shake it = rattle can
after its bolted down with the nuts tightened you cut off the threads sticking up from the nuts making it hard to steal. = knock the threads off.

I KNOW Kmann has your solution i just know he does!!! hahahaha!
wwwwwwwwwheres Kmann?!

Dodo, would you set a museum quality pump outside?
I would not set a 63 outside.
Now the cost. I can afford $0,000.00 but it would be a stretch to go $10,000.00. Can you afford it?

I have kept an eye out for an original pump for several years, approx 10 years and have yet to find one that wasnt just a rusted piece of junk without any parts for a min. of $1500.00. Am I to understand that this is the going rate for one of these?
I would really like to buy one, but at what cost?

Oh, yeah, thanks for the info. I (as a rookie in this) did not know that the cylinder was a hard part to find. Now, are they hard to find, or are there repops and they are just real expensive. I have not found any but then again I am new to this sport.

Tom,thanks for the translation, and Kmann is????

By the way, dont you brad the bolts or at least stake the nuts?

You have found cheaper I offered you the same as above, rougher skins but has a nozzle for way less than that one, if someone could pick it up.

I already mentioned that the glass is generally 400-800 & up for original.
Repop glass is around 250, acrylic around 100 something, all of those are without shipping, real glass is hard to ship(pricey).

Which is why you cannot build one cheap, but without cylinder but with screens, from 30 ft you cant tell...the glass is the only thing easily broken.

Pump Jockie put your email address in your profile so i can send you some info if you would like it. I suggested this in my first post along with the picture. I make those. Both short and tall. I could get you into something i am sure with work from you on your end. And anyone who thinks repo pumps are junk and not to scale needs to take alook at mine. Every piece will interchange with the original made like the original. Rant over!!!

Enough speculation. Here's a real live example. This is a real T-176 I bought locally here in AZ without a cylinder, and the cheapest I could probably do it (Not that this is how I am doing it but could)Assuming No Cylinder at purchase. Add $500.00 for an original glass cyl, $250 to $300 for a glass repo cyl, or $165 for Plastic cyl or like suggested just use a mesh hail screen for el-cheapo. This was a solid no rust through pump with only a few minor small dents and as you can see was missing $110 in big stuff ie the door and handle.

Pump - $475
Hose - $20.00
Nozzle off Ebay - $35.00
Handle - $55.00
Door - $55.00
Tags - $20.00
Rattle Paint - $25.00
Decal - $10.00
13 1/2" Globe - $70.00
Misc - $35.00 (screws, sandpaper, bondo, etc)

For a grand total of $800.00.

T-176's are bullit proof with real thick sheet metal and could take any rocks or mower thrown objects quite well. Add 5 years and you will probably double your money or better. The big deal is you have to find one locally as shipping will kill you on pumps.

Zip, that is a beautiful looking pump. So you make them yourself? Wow!!!
Do you have a web site? I assume from your response that yours are an exact replica of an actual pump? Please exuse my ignorance of the subject, but which model does it replicate? Even my wife said "That's nice".
I don't think she gets to exited over gas pumps.

Dodo, Thanks to you for the reminder. Sorry I forgot.
Is it safe to assume that what jrwienri said is true, that shipping these pumps will kill you? Local is not an option as was said earlier.

Are any of you guys vendors and will you be at the Dayton show?

If $200 to $300 won't kill you then it's not safe to assume but the last 2 I have shipped came from South Dakota to Arizona and the other from texas to Arizona so only half way from sea to sea and both were pushing $300 bucks. The sellers had to drop them off and I had to pick them up at the forward air freight terminal. One was a Tok 620 which is about as big as you can get and the other was a Wayne 60.

jrwienri, Yeh thats expensive to ship but not considering trying to drive it yourself.
You say you have a couple of pumps for sale?
Can you attach some pics and information?
I could be interested if you are willing to part with them.
Thanks,
Pump Jockie

Last year I bought a restored t-176 ,done in blue crown for $1300. It has original blue cyl.Got it at an aumann auction near chicago. that's pretty cheap for a restored pump.they are out there. I visited a friend in cridersville ohio and saw at least 10 pumps on the way from Illinois to ohio. You can pick up a reasonable pump in ohio at one of the gas shows. they are in ohio too. just bite the bullet and do it. Mike

Todd, yeah, I saw it, but I have been asking the question all along of which of all of the reproductions are the closest to an original and I get a lot of feedback concerning buying a real pump and poo pooing reproductions. So far, I still dont know which is closest to real. And all I was after was size and shape. I could really care less if it has all of the guts inside it.
After all, I am not going to open the thing up, nor will I ever try and pump anything out of it. I just want it to sit in one spot and look pretty.

Thanks,
Pump Jockie

Pump Jockie,

I have read alot of post's in this thread I think that we have covered each of your options in great length. As I see you have two options, save some cash for a while and buy the real deal or spend your $800 bucks now on a repo that resembles a visible. Either options are good but seriously just make up your mind.
