Believe me Duane, if I had your ability and was 20 years younger, I would make more than that. But I guess I will have to settle for patching up the junk stuff. I am sooo!! glad you do what you do. Thank you.

The two most frequent customer requests:

Tank valves. Available repro but worthless.

Tanks. Available used (occasionally) but rusted, most not useable.

That said and since no one else has or will, I am committed to making both the early (brass) and later (pot metal) valves yet this year. I don't need the work so if anyone else wants to do this, please advise.

That said, I am in preliminary design stage for doing the tanks. It would be a fun project that would take around
5 months since I would have to design/build another press
to handle the new dies I would also need to design/make.

Anyone want to do this one, please advise.
Comments welcome.
