A work in progress to be started soon. I thought that this was a Smithway and now believe it to be a Neptune L 1. It has a Smithway nomenclature plate on the side of it indicating Model L 1. I think that I am blessed with an almost complete pump with the exception of one of the sight/spinner glasses. The porclein faces and 'lead' signs are in excellent condition and can be made perfect with a little touch up. The inside thin metal around the window which held the EYTHL frosted glass signs, is rusted in the corners but may be repairable. I plan on removing the pump and pump motor to reduce weight as the Mrs. wants it in the living room. Should I keep them? Also, what are the chances of finding a sight/spinner glass?

Cheers,

Donnie V
