Title: Real Oily
Post by: john k on January 01, 2019, 10:37:33 PM
Just some of my miniature oil cans.  Got to collect something, right?   Besides, wrenches, woodworking tools, old saws,  jacks , just to keep busy right?

Cool collection John!  Do you have a favorite?  Which one is the oldest?

OK John, You started it. Give me a little time to gather pics and I'll show you mine. I love oil and grease cans.

I have 3 or 4 small ones, I have this old American National fire chief pedal car that had a holder for a oil can so I've made a few holders and saved the small oil cans when I can find them.In the background is some toy tools that I have been collecting and repairing

Whenever I go to the flea, garage or estate sales, I am always on the lookout for WW2 Jeep and GMTK correct 1/2” pint oilers. I’ve managed to accumulate several including a repacked NOS Gem. The last picture is a bracket that bolts to a Jeep firewall to hold the on-board oiler.

Very cool.  That bracket would be easy to overlook--or more likely, it would go to the crusher with the rest of the Jeep.
