WWII Hand Operated Bilge Pump


Recommended Posts

Well . . . half of one anyway :ermm:


I love oddities, and this fit the bill for me. It is about a yard long, but looks like it was trimmed and hammered smooth at the bottom. Made of thin steel and riveted along the seam. 4" diameter on the tube. Inside is a leather cone shaped plunger

It matches pics I've seen of the manual pump on the nose of DUKW's (Those are about 6' long), just cut short :blink:




And the bottom where the 'flap' valve is:




At least the stencil is nice :lol:
