Here was my quarantine project I just wrapped up. I have had this pump for awhile.......a rare Wayne 861/40, manufactured in 1933. According to the Pump Blue Book, only 300 were built. These pumps had components of both the Wayne 861 clock face and the Wayne 40 computer face pumps. There were a few unique parts, mainly a special bezel that was exclusive to this pump. It needed a few parts......luckily I live near Tom Buckles, so was able to go over there a couple times and pester him for what I needed! I also rewired the electrical conduit while it was partially disassembled.
Fun project, but now seriously considering Wasatch Man's idea!!

With some of my free time I have been doing some woodworking though not the kind you would normally associate with the term. I have been doing what I call dry scraping. I have two 1920s wood boxes from the Imperial Oil Company. Both were covered with a fair amount of dirt and grease that covered up a lot of the writing. Taking a rounded end x-acto knife blade I have slowly scraped away this grunge to reveal all the lettering again. I realize that some people prefer them left alone but I don't. It is a time consuming process but in my view the results are worth the effort. Cheers, Don.

Wife and I built a farm table this week for my sons new house, pics later as we just poly'd it.

Finishing a pump restoration. I bought it back around 1990 from Terry St.Clair. I disassembled it back then and tinkered with here and there as I restored and sold many others, bought signs, sold signs,and jumped in and out of the hobby a few times. This pump was always "the next project" that was just never finished. Finally got it painted this week.
It is an Erie 10 with original GULF cast plaque below faces. Can't wait to finally reassemble and display it proudly in my new room above garage, which is also being finished in rough cut pine during this down time.

This is off topic but what I find pretty amusing when I look at pictures of every ones collections I see that a lot of you guys have O.C.D I have it really bad , everything has to be clean organized set strait right in its own special place . The problem with that is people see that and start messing with you. It could be your daughter who will put an empty beer can up on a shelf so you can just barely see it behind an oil can then wait to see how long it takes for you to notice . Or your friend comes over and moves your visible pump handles off center when your not looking . Then you have the new collector guy come over for the first time and has to pick everything up and handle it plus put it down wrong . I could go on and on .

I think I'd enjoy the glow of a Wurlitzer more than the glow of a fire too, lol. Looks relaxing Peter.

This 110 volt siren has been apart in my shop for over a year needing some spare time to restore and reassemble. Got it done and have been running it at 7 PM nightly in tribute to caregivers and first responders across the nation!
