Here is a really great and very scarce Chandler brand Model #45 rack & pinion gear operated, hand-driven well or cistern pump. This is very unusual and in great condition with no breaks or damage, and everything moves as it should. And this thing is BIG - larger that the typical upright hand pumps - the top is nearly 5' tall when the handle is down, and there is a beautiful cast iron knob at the the end of the 3' long handle. I haven't taken this apart, but I believe that this could be put back into working order with an interior rehab and some new leathers.
This is also very heavy - 80 pounds. I can't see the shipping figure from here - I just logged the weight and box size into the UPS calculator and it varies according to your zip code. Or you can pick this up in north central Iowa zip 50468.
