WTB: The Missing Water Valve This Carbide Generator

Post by George House » Thu Jan 09, 2020 1:49 pm

This brass carbide generator is one I acquired about 40 years ago and somehow lost the drip valve on a tour. Is this still being reproduced and could I purchase this 1 piece?... Thanks for looking....George...gwhouse731(at)gmail.com

Please just touch the picture and it becomes rightside up..🤬

One of the biggest problems with today’s youth is they’ve never known the fear of hearing leather being rapidly pulled through seven Wrangler belt loops.

I should add; it was a reproduction (no name) of 40 years ago...

George that looks like a JB, could tell if I saw the base. I have a valve I can let you use to make one. It’s pretty simple. I think Mike Lebsack reproduces some generators but can’t be certain. He may have one already done.
