Mini Thumb Pump Oil Cans
« on: June 05, 2021, 03:55:52 PM »
I picked these up at several different estate sales. Half dollar in the second photo for size comparison.
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

Some pedal cars came with a oil can and holder, late 1920's American National comes to mind. btw I've made some oil can holder  like A-N had on theirs.

The one on the far right is marked Brother. I believe it is for Brother sewing machines.  Far left is marked Japan.   Center left is probably an oil valve company promotional.  It has the company’s sticker on the bottom.  Center right is unmarked.

Always liked the mini oil cans, some of what I have left.   Apologies for the dust,

Neat!  Nice collection.  I’m trying hard to continue picking them up when I find them and not actively buy a bunch off eBay.
