Four months ago, I posted this 1890 lawn sprinkler. It was made by the Stebbing Mfg. Co. in Springfield, Mass. It is called "The Comet Lawn Sprinkler". The last photo shows an advertising of the sprinkler in 1890. It was in rough shape with bent top sprinkler head and missing two of the three rotating spray wands.
I said that I would post it after I cleaned it up and made three new spray wands and nozzles. It now looks as it did in 1890 with the cast iron legs and body painted a forest green paint, the brass is now polished , the top sprinkler head straightened out and three new spray wands with new nozzles made
I always get a sense of satisfaction if I can keep something from the scrap yard, even something as sinple as a lawn sprinkler.
