What Makes Our Custom Pumps Different?

Thanks for your interest in having us build you a custom vintage gas pump. Here is what you can expect:

Listed below are the details of our replica pumps including size, shape, weight & materials used in their construction. Our calculator and clock face pumps are an exact replica of the Tolkeim 876 pump built in the 1940's. At the bottom of the page is a link to our contact info.

Real Parts? – All of the cast aluminum parts used on our pumps are cast using the original pump parts as patterns. These patterns are then used to cast our parts at a aluminum foundry here in the USA.

The body panels are made of precolored .040 sheet aluminum. This is the same material used to make current gas station overhanges. We shear, bend & cut all the holes in house to produce each pump.

Casting Finishes – The top, base, pump handles & visible cylinder end caps are primed and painted. The face frame and globe ring can be painted or polished to a bright finish depending on the customers wishes. The hose/nozzle fixtures are left in their original cast color.

Lighting – The visible pump has a lighted globe only while the regular pump face is lighted as well. One or two 40 watt max bulbs are used. An inline switch is installed into the 110 volt power cord. While these pumps are used mostly indoors, if used outside, proper grounding should be done by a qualified electrician.

The faces, both the dial (clock) and calculator type are printed on high quality vinyl such as used for truck lettering. You can also order with a real working clock. We then cut, drill and bend an aluminum tray on which we apply the printed decal. We put real clock hands and screws in place along with a simulated sight glass which is pushed through a rubber grommet. This assembly mounts on the face frame with a 1/8” acrylic lens to protect the face decal. Keep in mind that these pumps are typically set along a wall and only have one face. As an option, a second Globe glass, face & sign can be installed on both sides should someone be building a replica pump island on which the pump will be seen all around.

Sign & Globe – The display glass in the globe at the top of the pump can be ordered with the logo of your choice from our supplier or we can have one custom printed with your own logo. The back glass is frosted. The sign on the front of the pump can be a porcelain reproduction or a decal. As with the globe glass, if you want a custom logo, we can have it printed and installed for you.

Size – A typical face type pump with 60” tall side panels is 84” from the floor to the top of the globe. The side panels can be cut shorter if ceiling height is a problem. The visible pump uses the same side panels and stands 112” to the top of the globe. No problem to shorten this one either. Weight on a face pump is approximately 50 lbs. While the visible weighs approximately 65 lbs. The maximum width at the base is 18” and the body is about 14” excluding any signs or the hose mounted on the sides. Depth is the same.

Shipping – Most of our pumps are shipped by common carrier to your location. A pump ships in 2 boxes with the pump base weighing 75 lbs and the top weighing 25 lbs. The visible top pump is larger and weighs 60 lbs. All pumps are shipped assembled. We do not charge for packing, and in most cases the cost to ship a pump to most locations in the lower 48 states is less than $200.00. Remember a residential delivery will cost more and someone will need to be home to receive the pump. Please call or email for an exact shipping cost or any other questions.

Custom built Double Pumps, beer tap pumps & specialty pumps – While they have many of the same specifications, there are many other factors involved that effect the shipping costs. Please contact us for an exact cost..
