I am cleaning up the barn and came across these grease guns. Are any of them Model A or T? If not I will pitch them.

In my opinion the bottom two could be.
The T I don't think ever had a use for a grease gun.
You just fill the grease cups and screw them back on.

The bottom one goes on a hose thet gets grease from a barrel.without seeing the nozzle I can't tell what type of greas fitting it could used for.

The top one looks like an old chainsaw sprocket grease gun.

The top one is for the ball type fittings often used on machine tools for oil points.

The middle is for pin type grease fittings and often used on heavy machinery.

The bottom could be anything. Clean it up and see if there's a maker name or patent number. The time period might be obtained from those but it doesn't look Model T era. The Model T didn't use pressure grease fittings--They used cups. Not sure about Model As.

Thanks for the replies. I will pitch them. If anyone wants one or all they are free if you pay shipping.

Since a Model T had no grease fittings, they couldn't have used one of those!

I cannot see if it is complete or not. But the middle one is an after-market (and machinery, and some cars) Alemite gun. Studebaker. and about a hundred other cars used Alemite fittings in the 1920s.
I would probably be willing to pay shipping charges if you want to bother. I do use Alemites on my boat-tail, and have an excellent original grease gun for them that I use. Send me a quick PM with an estimate if you want to bother with it.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

None of those were issued for Model A or V8, but look to be from that era.
