In the 1920's there was a crisis of confidence with gas stations selling recycled or inferior oil but charging for premium. Mobil responded with the Filpruf system where they provided a special dispenser to the distributor. It could only be filled using a special wrench which today are nonexistent. Once filled by a Mobil distributor at the station, the dispenser only connected to diamond shaped bottles with a unique one way metal spout. If the station tried to bypass the special spout, either it broke or the bottle shattered. Over time, the stations broke the special filling port so they could fill the bottles as they wanted. Finding a complete unit with a working wrench key filling port, spout adapter and proper bottle is unlikely.

This one just needs to have a key made once I figure out the combination. Four pins have to be depressed each with 3 positions on a circular 6" three level wrench. Quite ingenious design.image.jpg

I believe it was either a 20mm anti aircraft shell or it was from a 3" AA gun, regardless it's from WWII my grandfather gave me the round (long since demilled) I made it into a lamp.


ETA: Ps I know they're sideways sorry can't help it

Custom painted guitar.
It started out life as a Japanese import. I bought it at a police auction in Ithaca in the mid 80's. I painted it and it looked like crap. My buddy rebuilt it and airbrushed it. We call it Mary Jane Rottencrotch.

No. 1 is the shape and style. It's an old telegraph insulator. I have a couple hundred of these. When I was a kid I robbed them from the telegraph poles along the railroad tracks. Some going back to 1865.

Wanna guess what the nickname of this one is?

Maybe 35 years ago I was in the country somewhere, could have been PA, and I was in an antique store. There had been a massive flood there at one time and this insulator was from a power pole that had been knocked down. It was made by WhithallTatum Co. No. 1 (size i guess)

It is an ignition coil for a turn of the 20th century car.
Very interesting.
