The other day I draged home a couple of things for free and I have looked and looked but I'm not sure what they are. I think the Wright brand item is some kind of chainsaw and the Dayton brand item is some kind of pump. My brother has already scrapped these items so all I have is pics.

That Wright saw was made to cut up animal carcasses after butchering. My uncle had one, always cursed it because it was hard to start. :)

I just sold one of those Wrights without the blade to a chainsaw collector. He said it was a reciprocator and was pretty happy to get it.

Looks to be a pressure washer of some sort with that pop- off valve and recirculating line.

If they're gone now it kinda doesn't matter, right? :dunno:

If you still had the Dayton pump you could have gotten the number off of it and looked it up at Grainger. Probably still can get parts for it, too.

I have been looking for one of those Wright saws to restore and use. They are great for cutting square beams and thick section boards that will be visible when finished.
Your brother should do research before scrapping stuff. Tell ya what, if they're just laying around there, I'll give $50 for every one he can fit on a pallet. I'll even arrange shipping.

If this is true then you are in business with the wrong guy. You ought to be running a resale store. Your not getting your money's worth out of those antique/collectibles. Do you watch American Pickers on TV???

I would have paid 200 bucks and paid for shipping.. I'm betting that's more then scrap price.. Breaks my heart.. Some of this stuff you never find up here. It's just tossed in other areas.. You need to collect stuff on your own .. I'm also looking for a chain saw with those big loop chains on em..

Scary to run is an understatement!!
