After we finished drooling over everything (and all too often lusting after the same items), we made some choices, and here is one of mine, a vintage gas pump. Here's how it went as we (Jake and I, and then Nils at the end) disassembled it. When I bought it, I thought there must be lots of stuff inside as it was quite heavy. And, of course, all those intriguing dials showing held a lot of promise. Here's the sequence of disassembly:
Above you see it as it started out with a hand crank on the side and several sets of dials.
Here we have the front off...and I find the front very intriguing in itself.
The next level back gives us a peek at what's inside.
Luscious little dials with brass gears on the sides.
After some struggle, more wonderful dials.
And lots of bits and pieces at the end.
Tabor and Greg, the time at your home was absolutely entrancing! Lovely food, good conversation, captivating surroundings, and good shopping. What could be better?
