I find it strange that there in no preference in brand or a certain look. Ie, A Wayne 615, ot a G&B or a Boyle-Dayton.

Sorta like asking about a vintage car from that era, no brand just a 20's car or a 30's car.. Just makes it real hard to make comparisons.

At least 2 pretty complete visibles were offerd in this thread plus The reproductions of which I think there were at least 2 choices.

Most important buy something you like the looks of, the rest is a bit less important.
The downside, most dont stop at 1 pump, but are not complaining either..JMO...

Tom, I wont go away mad, I know there are a lot of people that are passionate about there hobbies. Thats cool.
I am going to get a pump and I will try and post some pics of it/them when I get it done.
Thanks

Dodogas,
Since I am new to this hobbie, I do not know all of the different brands of pumps. I do like the visible bowl style though. I just dont know the brands of them and there various nuances. I was hoping that I could get that kind of information here.
Personally I would not know a wayne from a boyle or a g&b or an mouse

Thanks,
PJ

I built a Gilbarco 86 to put outside. Then I could not bring myself to do put it in the rain when I was finished. So I built a home made visible pump out of a brake drum, acetylene tank, a propane tank and some expanded metal to simulate a hale screen. I get compliments all of the time on the creation. I call it yard art. Almost everyone thinks it was a real pump back in the day. I know the serious collectors will laugh, but at least I do not have to worry about it being out in the weather.

Okay, here's what I made out of mostly all scrap materials. PVC drain pipe, cut down aluminum lamp shade, and other non rusting materials. I did buy a plexiglass cylinder. Other parts were some leftovers from other old pumps that I once had. Globe is reproduction. I built two of these, one of which has sat outside for over 10 years. No rust! Get creative & start looking around for stuff that will work.
