I would like a Weasel Oil can that DB made. I can't imagine anyone selling one, but if you happen to have an extra one, please let me know. I miss his humor and wit and need a can to remind me of him when i'm not on Oldgas…Thanks!

I don't know about Owen, but I'm still looking to buy one of DB's Weasel Oil cans!
It would mean a lot to me if someone would sell me one. I bet someone has an extra???

Why don't you check with ThunderII. If I remember, he told the story of its history.

Thanks for reminding me about the "Weasel Oil" cans... I had set it in a corner of the garage...

I am one of the "lucky ones" to also own a "Weasel Speedoil" can.....

Well needless to say, I would love one as well, but someone please tell me the story behind them? There has to be some kind of story.

Thanks Bob!! Those are some old threads. Before my time in the hobby. Kind of left me a little confused to be honest with you.

I think Dick confused a lot of us at one point in time.

I hope all of you guys locate a can.

Does anyone have any idea as to how many Repro cans, of all kinds, that DB made & sold? I have about six.

I have been asked to contribute to this. Yes, I do have numerous examples of the Professor's work. However, ALL of the items, are VERY precious to me, so they will remain as a part of my collection.

Dick Bennett, made more than just Repro cans. We worked together on items such as, bottles of "Grinder Sparks" and "Blinker Fluid", in many different company names. Many different decals, for various pumps, and other items in my collection, can also be credited to him. He has also provided me with Oil, and Fuel Filter Boxes, for my collection.

Dick also re-lidded cans, of numerous different sizes. In fact, he had a machine, for every size. He even made a "Drum" Magazine, for my Tommy Gun prop.

I attended his memorial. Dick would have given me one as it was just a joke between him an Paddy, texaspelican. Had no reason to want one. Kind of silly at the time.

Trust me, I want one to honor my friend!
