The more interesting comment would be: WHO MAKES THOSE? its a great item to reproduce.

Forget this auction, the display its populated with junk oilers and the casting not even polished, but that base is a very neat repro.

As crappy as hidden fees are, I am sure a smart bidder could do the math and bid accordingly. It not like a high pressure live auction: yelling, incoherent babbling, pretend bids and every emotional game in the book to trick bids out of buyers. There is plenty of time to multiply 1.2, multiply tax, and add ( shipping, handling).

He should of atleast re-placed the broken glass and polished it a little bit, if its shinny and in good condition its bound to bring more money.

I am not sure how you can tell the arch base is a reproduction or not from the photo. But i do know they have been reproduced in the past, for a short time anyway.

I like the arched display mount, but at 20% buyers premium he doesn't have to worry abiout me bidding on it..LOL

He can keep the oilers.....but I do like the arch mount.

Photo Re: Lunkenheimer Oiler Display

Here is one of the repro Lunkeheimer arches. I incorporated it my newest Lunk board. In the front are all rod oilers including some Cincinnati Brass Works. The others are examples of the rarer Lunk names. The 2 non brass ones are the aluminum "ALSEN" and the cast iron "ARCTIC".

I got mine from Doug Mixter at Coolspring. I think he was the one who had them cast. I beleive he was asking $150. Don't know about the tapping for oilers. These are not that wide to driill much of a hole. I like mine just the way it is.
