Dale, Re the crank handle - it was on e-bay and had the square hole on the end but it is no longer there--pulled or sold. I was surprised because all the other crank handles were as you describe. Part of me was hoping it was made for the easel and misidentified, but the listing did not have the square hole dimensions.

I have a bunch of tools from when I was in my 20's (way back when), but alas a welding kit is not one of those... laugh

Jim, thanks for the socket tutorial. I bought that set back in 1980. I think I may have used it for my car 74, pre anti pollution (lots of room for a beginner to work with) Corolla as I couldn't afford to go to a mechanic while I was in school. I'll have to count the star points.

The square turn heads look to be hand made and vary very slightly in width along the shaft which has made it a guessing game, and my ignorance in socketry hasn't helped. lol I saw a universal socket, but thought it might be too wide for the space in between, but may measure and re look at that again.

Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. With your information, I will try again getting samples from the hardware store (and car parts store), and if that doesn't work, I know a blacksmith (and maybe he knows a welder) who might help.

I love this easel and am finally in a studio where I can use it. It needs a 12 foot minimum ceiling to be fully utilized at eye level by 5' 6" me. I stand when I work, and it's the first time I've been able to stand and work on the bottom of some of my larger paintings without having to Jerry rig an extension on my other easels that always had the potential of slipping and damaging the canvas.

I need a well-packed, fairly small box (probably about 20' x 20' x 16") transported from New York state to the Peotone Gas/Oil Meet March 10 or 11. The contents are fragile, so it would be great to have an Old Gas guy do this, rather than a carrier like FedEx Ground. Will compensate the person, of course. If you think this is a "maybe", I can be more specific about were in New York state the box is located. The person who currently has the box may be able to meet close to you, or at your place. Any help will be appreciated a great deal. Thanks. John

You mentioned above a picture of the hat. Gas pumps are gender related and are females, that top was referred to as a bonnet by many companies.

In the words of the late Johnny Carson "I did not know that."

I have a Standard sign and pole and I'm missing a few details. What lights were used on these poles for sure? I see pics of them with 2 lights coming out from under the sign, they look to be 8" or 10", angled light shade, is that correct? I have the base of the Flame though its a bit beat up, does any one have the Base and OR the Flame?

Yes, its still available. Sorry for the delayed response... I'm not in front of the sign at the moment but I believe the sign is 16 inches wide by 5 - 6 ft tall.

I thought you guys would appreciate this story. I bought some stuff from a guy that was renovating a house built in 1923. He was tearing down a poorly built wall and found that is was partly made from this sign. We learned that ham and eggs was a political movement in the 30's here in California.

Pump guts will pocket fuel. The ONLY way to get it out is disassemble EVERYTHING and clean it all. This is why I always gut my pumps.
