BOEKEL HAND OPERATED DIVE PUMP
Presented is another standard early hand operated dive pump made by the Wm Boekel Company of Philadelphia. It was patented in 1904 and used for shallow water dive operations, and some early fire fighting applications. And again, for dramatic effect, we’ve had it polished and lacquered for display. It has some minor dents from use, which do not detract from its appeal. It is brass and copper. The gaskets in the brass tube would have to be replaced for actual operation.
