After recently restoring one unusual Romort air meter, got the bug and looking for other Romort's or American air meters. Any leads would be great!

Let's see some pictures of the restorations you have done. Always here of completions but never see the pics.
Thanks

This is a Romort Model 9 that I am finishing up. It was in very rough shape. Cracked base, missing access door, destroyed pedestal, Face bezel missing 5" of casting, no glass etched dial face, no dial arm and missing top lid to the globe that I had metal spun.
Parts getting ready to go to the chrome plater. The cast iron "AIR" is being recast and whip had not been done yet. Air pump stands 9' w/o the 6' whip on top. Unusual air meter!

Terrific jobs on these air machines. Pictures make us all appreciate what is still out there. Those Eco's and the Romort are just outstanding.

If you like to look at pictures of air meters, I wrote the Air Meter Identification book. It shows over 400 air meters. The book is still available, just email me.
