Does anyone have a guess on who made this and when? I was thinking American Scale or Eco but the top section is gone and this is the only photo I have. Any info would be much appreciated.

Air-Scale Company, Toledo, Ohio. They made some great products. Finding the head will be tough. Let me know if you need literature or any parts.

Thanks fellas. My gut tells me this is early 20s. Am I in the ballpark?

What you have is a Air-Scale Model JR. It was introduced in 1933 and the original price was $90.00. It came with a 25 ft. air hose on the reel.

It is pictured on page 17 of my Air Meter Identification book

For more information on my book, see www.gaspumpbible.com
