After looking at the final sales totals it seems as if many are bidding with the 23% in mind. A lot of the stuff I thought was pretty close what I would pay for that item, others not so much.

Used from 1936 to 1958 for 'Motor Grade' gasoline.

Normally found on a glass body and valued at $400.00 - $600.00 according to the 2016 Gas Globe CD.

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".....

They made reproductions of this flange sign. I was offered one about six years ago. You have to look close, but you can tell if you know what to look for.
Looking at the condition of yours, I would say it was one of those.

This is an original flange sign, It came out of a box of 6 signs and was the one in the best cond. Came from an old Chevron dealer in north idaho, If you look you can see it is different from the repros out there. It is in very good condition with more scratches on one side than the other and a slight fade line on the bottom. Its a painted tin sign and id say about 20" tall but can get an exact size on sun.

Ive picked up this Buick sign that from all indications is original. It came from north Idaho. It is a little rough so it wont comand top dollar but is super rare. I couldnt find any like it in my research, just the India and another repro dated 1947. Neither are the same. It has the Veribrite Chicago stamp on the flange, Im outa town for a few more days so i cant meaasre it precisely till sun but its about 20" id say. Thanx for making it easier to load pics, i can now be active in selling finally! Asking $1200 406 360 1465

Dale, Re the crank handle - it was on e-bay and had the square hole on the end but it is no longer there--pulled or sold. I was surprised because all the other crank handles were as you describe. Part of me was hoping it was made for the easel and misidentified, but the listing did not have the square hole dimensions.

I have a bunch of tools from when I was in my 20's (way back when), but alas a welding kit is not one of those... laugh

Jim, thanks for the socket tutorial. I bought that set back in 1980. I think I may have used it for my car 74, pre anti pollution (lots of room for a beginner to work with) Corolla as I couldn't afford to go to a mechanic while I was in school. I'll have to count the star points.

The square turn heads look to be hand made and vary very slightly in width along the shaft which has made it a guessing game, and my ignorance in socketry hasn't helped. lol I saw a universal socket, but thought it might be too wide for the space in between, but may measure and re look at that again.

Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. With your information, I will try again getting samples from the hardware store (and car parts store), and if that doesn't work, I know a blacksmith (and maybe he knows a welder) who might help.

I love this easel and am finally in a studio where I can use it. It needs a 12 foot minimum ceiling to be fully utilized at eye level by 5' 6" me. I stand when I work, and it's the first time I've been able to stand and work on the bottom of some of my larger paintings without having to Jerry rig an extension on my other easels that always had the potential of slipping and damaging the canvas.

I need a well-packed, fairly small box (probably about 20' x 20' x 16") transported from New York state to the Peotone Gas/Oil Meet March 10 or 11. The contents are fragile, so it would be great to have an Old Gas guy do this, rather than a carrier like FedEx Ground. Will compensate the person, of course. If you think this is a "maybe", I can be more specific about were in New York state the box is located. The person who currently has the box may be able to meet close to you, or at your place. Any help will be appreciated a great deal. Thanks. John

You mentioned above a picture of the hat. Gas pumps are gender related and are females, that top was referred to as a bonnet by many companies.

In the words of the late Johnny Carson "I did not know that."

I have a Standard sign and pole and I'm missing a few details. What lights were used on these poles for sure? I see pics of them with 2 lights coming out from under the sign, they look to be 8" or 10", angled light shade, is that correct? I have the base of the Flame though its a bit beat up, does any one have the Base and OR the Flame?
