post number 39

I have been thinking about moving my oil tank to my tool box. Then I would have more gas capacity and would be able to make more distance between gas stops. After our scientific process of south dakota measuring we determined that the tool box will roughly hold three quarts.

My friend Tim Spacke sent me an original oiler to use as a pattern. Here are all the pieces that I have to copy.

Check out this cool detail. the gas knobs say gas! I love old bikes


  1. will you do molds and castings of those valve bodies and other parts? It would be cool to see how that works.

  2. CORRECTION, I am holding the oil knob that says oil, the gas fitting says gas!

    I sent the casting off to have a mold made today. The other pieces will be machined and I plan on making the spring steel piece after all the other pieces are done. Wish me luck, I am shooting from the hip! lol
