I'm not a huge collector of cans and I already have several favorite cans in my own collection. Therefore, I am going to sell a lot of the other cans I currently have stockpiled (including some real good, hard to find cans). I'm going to sell them all on eBay. Up until 2 weeks ago I have never sold anything on eBay. I threw a few cans on there to get my feet wet and it went well.
ALL OF THE CANS I AM GOING TO SELL ARE GOING TO START OUT AS COMMON OR LOWER PRICED CANS AND THEN PROGRESSIVELY GET BETTER AS TIME GOES ON. All the way up to PENNTROLEUM, JOHNSON, HUDSON, HUSKY, INDIAN, OILZUM, REFINERS, OLD DUTCH, and BEAR RING cans among other great cans. There are quarts, square gallons, a few 2 gallons, handy oilers, and grease cans. I will try to post several each week with my auctions ending on Sunday evenings around 10pm eastern time. If you are a can collector and would like to save me as an eBay seller, that'd be great and I'd appreciate it.
I will try to post the eBay link to all of them here on OldGas, in this thread. If you want to purchase one, please click the link here on OldGas to bid, because eBay pays OldGas a percentage, which helps out this website. Some of the cans in the beginning may not appeal to everyone here on OldGas, but I will post them with a link anyway to help out OldGas… just in-case.
Well that is a problem because the factory spinners assembly was not designed to be taken apart because they folded over the end of the tube to form a tight hold on the blades. I have been able to somehow grind down just enough of the fold to remove the broken spinners and still be able to tap the tube down enough hold the blades in place. I know this is not the most clear answer to your question but it's hard to detail the actual process, it can be done and if all else fails just epoxy them on.
OK, that's what I thought. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't some easier way that I was overlooking. Thanks for passing along the info.
Moozark, Came across your thread from a few years back in regards to some questions about the Purity Oil company in Springfield Missouri. I would be interested to hear from you in regards to any information that you have found. I too reside in Springfield Missouri and have had some interest looking into the history of this company. You can contact me at the email address in my Profile. Thanks!
Never met Scott, but by all the comments sounds like a great guy. My condolences to his family, friends, and acquaintances. The one gentleman said that he ALWAYS put God and his faith first. If so, then guys he is all set for the better world true Christians know is coming when we pass from this life! God bless Scott!
I was a little surprised when I got my letter but realizing it’s been 17 years and a lot, a lot of work I totally understand. You guys and gals have keep this one of the best swap meets going after Wayne (RIP) and Earl started it. They have passed it on two great care givers that will keep the standards going. Couldn’t be happier for both parties.
