I'm interested in finding information pertaining to Boe Manufacturing of Minneapolis, MN. Online searching led me to a forum here discussing a Boe lubester rack that was sold in an auction. It's clear that a lot of members here have some knowledge about the grease and oil dispensing products that Boe produced in the 1920's.

Why am I interested? Hans Martin Boe, the founder of Boe Manufacturing, was my great grandfather. Yet, very little knowledge of his company was retained in my family. I just recently started searching for information. I've learned a lot, and it's been a fun journey.

I'd love to learn more and exchange information with anyone else who's interested.

Best Regards!

Hi Jack,

I would like to see photos of Boe products, and more information about the company. I have seen oil bottles with the Boe name, and a picture of one Boe lubester pump. I have copies of all 15 of his patents.

Here is a Boe oil dispenser. I believe it was posted here on oldgas in the past. I did a search to try and find it again. I had no luck.

This looks like a Boe but do not know for sure if it is.

Hi Matt,
Thanks for posting that! I had not seen this before. There is a Boe Mfg patent for the faucets on the front of this type of oil dispenser, and for some oil display devices.
