I'm interested in finding information pertaining to Boe Manufacturing of Minneapolis, MN. Online searching led me to a forum here discussing a Boe lubester rack that was sold in an auction. It's clear that a lot of members here have some knowledge about the grease and oil dispensing products that Boe produced in the 1920's.

Why am I interested? Hans Martin Boe, the founder of Boe Manufacturing, was my great grandfather. Yet, very little knowledge of his company was retained in my family. I just recently started searching for information. I've learned a lot, and it's been a fun journey.

I'd love to learn more and exchange information with anyone else who's interested.

Best Regards!

Hi Jack,

I would like to see photos of Boe products, and more information about the company. I have seen oil bottles with the Boe name, and a picture of one Boe lubester pump. I have copies of all 15 of his patents.

Here is a Boe oil dispenser. I believe it was posted here on oldgas in the past. I did a search to try and find it again. I had no luck.

This looks like a Boe but do not know for sure if it is.

Hi Matt,
Thanks for posting that! I had not seen this before. There is a Boe Mfg patent for the faucets on the front of this type of oil dispenser, and for some oil display devices.

I've seen two styles of oil bottles with the name BOE MFG CO. One style has larger lettering, and says "PAT APPL'D FOR". The other style has the actual patent number, so I assume it is a later version.

Of the first style, I have seen that some have very distinct lettering, and some have less distinct lettering that looks almost hand-written. A seller on E-Bay selling the kind with less distinct lettering told me it was a replica. Do people really make replicas of glass oil bottles?

The shape of the bottle was patented by Hans Boe to enable one to hold the bottle more securely with one oily hand, and the ribs around the base provided a more secure grip when holding the bottle upside down by the base.
