I will never forget when I got into this hobby back 20 years ago, I was told by a veteran collector/dealer that I was 20 year too late. He told me all the "good, rare pumps were gone." I have found my share of good and rare pumps. I enjoyed finding a stripped down or rusted out clock face/rare visible and finishing the pump. I loved hunting for the parts or having Ron Scobie make parts for me. Now its hard to find a stripped down or rusted out clock face and if you do you could spend $1000 to $2000 depending on how rare the pump is. Right now I have a 600 series Tokhiem that I probably will never get completed. 2 of the parts I need will probably not get reproduced due to 1) demand and 2) cost of making dies to make the parts. Parts I need are a bonnet and the lower sheet metal of the jar/cylinder base. I wish folks the best trying to complete pumps, its only going to get harder as time goes on.
