Why not a picture of a Cole's Worthington pump?

Many years ago, part of my early experience with machinery was building a Cole's Worthington pump. There are a few corrected mistakes in it, it might not last too long if I put it to work. With 35 PSI from an airbrush compressor it will squirt, with its unique rhythm, a small stream of water about 6 feet.

I had a Harpur Mogul. With axle pump, injector, and hand pump I did not need the Worthington pump.

I have plans for the Cole's Worthington that I could have photocopied then mail you. The price would be the photo coping cost plus postage. If interested get in touch with a private message.
Yes, I PM'd about these plans - I will pay too.

And if the above leads don't work out, I have a foggy memory that there might be something available from Australia. Warrick Sandberg (warrick_sandberg@hotmail.com) or the folks at Bolton Scale Models (sales@ejwinter.com.au) would be two places to check. Sandberg sells a nice looking one-lung unit.
