The pump in reply #406403 is most likely a fantasy pump, possibly by the Benkin Co.

Western Visible had at 5, 10 & 15 gallon models in either hand operated or air operated. It appeared they all used an etched cylinder.

In post #401924, I indicated that even though the Boyle Dayton sales literature showed an arrow type of indicator that I never have found any picture of a BD with anything other than the shield shape we are all familiar with. I finally found an old photo.

It's hard to tell from the original sales literature if Clear Vision used a number strip. All the clear Visions I have seen used only an etched cylinder like the one in the picture.

Below is a list of pump that from photos and sales literature appeared to use etched cylinders. Some were apparently available with indicators or etched cylinders.

Sales literature show the Doty with etched cylinders however I've seen pictures of Doty's with an American style indicator in them. Any out there with a Doty who can contribute a picture?

Appreciate the work you've done, Tim. I've enjoyed following the thread.

I meant to post these photos awhile ago, but never got around to it... was wondering if you've seen these markers before? Not sure what the pump make is either. In the photo with the two pumps, only the NAVY has these markers.

Awesome photos!!! On 3-13-2013 I posted the patent for this indicator under the heading of Indicator ideas that didn't survive. I also said "Below are some patents pictures of Indicators that probably were never put into production". Boy was I wrong.

Thanks for following the thread.
