Started on my first visible (Wayne 615). Someone took the pump out if it and wondering what you all have used and how you have mounted the handles if the pump is gone. Would like to keep the handle moving if possible. The handle I have is a repo

Original Model 25 "ECO Automatic Tire Inflator” (wall type). Looks like it was installed inside, appears to be original paint, “AIR” lettering is still visible on the side. A few scuffs show bright red under 80 or 90 years of garage grime. Has a little water fading on the face and light surface rust on the inside top, think it was stored upside down in a leaky attic for a few years. Crank moves easily and the indicator rotates as it should overall very clean. Think it would be difficult to find another unrestored one like this. I’m told Jack Sims guide had a value of 3500 on this model in 2008. $4900- local pickup or I can bring it to Hershey on October. (I'll be there tues-fri) I can email more pics.
I just finished reading the book titled "OIL MAN",the story of Frank Phillips the founder of Phillips Petroleum Co.Frank got his start in Creston Iowa where he was a barber,he owned several shops before going to Oklahoma and eventually striking it rich.He was a salty but generous old cuss,wish he would have been around to hear the remark of our former President when he said "You didn't build that business".I suspect there would have been a rapid response after reading what this guy went through,and many others like him,including Bill Skelly, Marland etc.An excellent read.
Found this recently. Not in my wheel house. Was wondering if anyone had an idea of value. The sign is DS but faded the same both sides. The base and frame are in great survivor shape. I guess the value is in the base & frame. The base reads “Amalie Oils & Greases” Thank you
