I recently bought this Wayne 50 from a guy in S.D. that saved it from the shredder a few years ago. The story is he pulled into the salvage yard and saw this on the crane headed for the shredder. He was able to flag the operator down in time to save the pump, but when it was being lowered to the ground it fell on its head.

I offer quart can re-lidding, can rolling, lid stamping, and dent removal.

Nice save. Story sounds the same as the movie Corvette Summer, but in the movie luckily only the emblem falls to the ground. Lol

Anyone can Restore a pump, BUT it takes a Craftsman to Resurrect a pump as this.

Great pump Kevin! I too have heard that story of this pump and I also know the guy you purchased it from.Glad you got a deal worked out and good luck on whatever you decide to do with that sweet pump. I live 1 mile from the local salvage yard which I will be looking at more often lol.
