12 - Heinke, London (Single Cylinder) Diving Pump
RARE Single Cylinder, Double Action HEINKE Diving Pump
Numbers (#130) on the frame and the case, which is brass bound and made of mahogany. It has a single C.E. Heinke gauge rated to 50 fathoms and has an unusual feature whereby the three removable mahogany panels at the front and back of the case are secured by being hung on brass hooks instead of being hinged to the case. Blue painted iron framework.
If you have access to the book 'Diving Helmets and Equipment Through the Ages' this pump's description is displayed over two pages and includes 8 x colour photographs.
The pump is in excellent working condition and has had a complete restoration.
It is quite a rare example and although made in London, it spent quite some time in Germany (including a museum) before returning to UK approx 15 years ago.
