Am I the only one who thinks that is an insane price for a Sunoco household oiler??? Granted, condition is perfect, but still....if that's market price for that thing I'm glad I don't collect handy oilers!
There was a recent Ebay sale with clear blank globe lenses or faces, 8 in all, that I purchased. Not exactly sure why I got them or what I’m doing with them, or going to do with them? My idea was to make a few of my own faces for globe bodies. A good friend of mine, who got me addicted to this hobby, has a last name of Wassum. So I tried my hand at making a globe face personalized for him. I have never done this. I am hoping to make few more custom faces. I used stained glass paint and Krylon brand window frosting. I , then, made a stencIl and free hand made the letters and cut it out with a razor. Then I took an old Sohio sign and taped over the “Anti-knock” part and took a razor knife and cut out the letters making another stencil. baked it for an hour at 250 f. degrees. There is some room for improvement. But, basically, I am happy with this 1st attempt.
Jack, I looked at Tims chart the other day in regards to this thread. It was a bit of a mystery to me so I decided not to refer him to it. . There is obviously an error somewhere that has to do with the 11x19 cylinder. That height measurement must be either for a five gallon jug or would be taller for a tall ten? Or its just mismarked on Tims chart as a ten gallon cylinder(and should be for a five). I really havent seen a 176 tall, but I suppose its possible they were out there. Also, James (the orig. poster) seems to be coming up with a smaller diameter that would fit his casting. I think he came to the conclusion that his was around 10 1/2".....
And thank you too, JimT. This is why I asked, as I did use the search function and could not find that information. This must be an obscure pump with little information. If I could find a close cylinder ( within a few inches of the correct height), that has damage that would not cost a lot, and damaged skins, I would like to make this some kind of “ lawn art” for now.
