Why?

Why, recreate a piece that is going to allow people to turn a normal islander into a station lighter? Unless you purposefully make something visually different so that it will always stand out as a repop. Simply casting it out of a different material isn't enough because somewhere down the road someone is going to be sold a made up item as an original.

I wanted a few station lighters and bucked up and paid for them. They're out there...just have to pay for them.

No need to make these, real collector's will buck up for the real stuff.

Just like Pam Clock's or any other glass faced advertising clock all you are going to do is destroy another collectible. I've read others being pretty critical of the people making all those clock parts.

I realize others have made these goose necks in the past. In my opinion they shouldn't have been made then or now. At least back then you didn't have all the people/vultures that exploit collectors. There are people out there now, that are simply in it for profit and will take advantage of any situation... i.e. the glass face advertising clocks and the 12" round porcelain signs. Big, big problems in the hobby now, just look at the online and repro forums everyday they are full of these examples.

Why would anyone want to be a part of the problem? I thought, the majority of us cared about this hobby. I can, come up with the capital to reproduce these today or for that many other items...not my cup of tea! Not the footprints, I want to leave behind in this hobby.

Point well taken Dave, but then where does that stop and start ? New skins for pumps, faces, globes, sight glass? This is the difficult part of our hobby, and one that I too have made parts for pumps because of lack of originals. I too feel that it infringes on the prices of originals plus the fact that there were only so many out there. Would love to see a thought process or other members thoughts on this.

Craig, good point and one that I should have touched on.

Reproduction parts to restore existing gas pumps is much different than making a part that allows someone to convert a much more readily available item into a much more rare and sought after item.

Everything needs to be DATED OR MARKED someplace on the piece PERIOD. Reproduction stuff does have its place but it needs to be disclosed as such.

Like a 1920's tin sign: if it looks to perfect to be original, it probably is.

I'm old school I guess, I would prefer original for both.
