Vintage Vacuum Pump Machine Hand Operated with Glass Globe Central Scientific Company. Would make a great gift or keep for yourself! Beautiful older hand operated Vacuum Pump here. The Vacuum Pump was made by Central Scientific Company of Chicago, IL. The Pump is made of cast iron painted gray and then the pump is made of brass.The hand wheel operates the pump and air is actually still be sucked out of the brass/copper outlet that sits under the glass globe to create the vacuum. The wood handle on the wheel is in place.
There is a spring around the perimeter of the wheel. That may have allow the piece to be hooked up to an electric motor instead of having to hand crank? The glass globe sits down on a thick ring of what appear to be plexiglass, not a piece of glass. All the cast iron pieces painted gray appear to be intact, no cracks or repairs to them. Looks like the brass pump may have been repaired at some point in past, see solder rings and the copper patch in one place.One of the pins in the hinging assembly to drive the pump is not original to the piece. The brass tag that is still on the pump body says, " Central Scientific Company, Laboratory Appartus, Chicago" The "Central" and "Chicago" are hard to read as worn on the label.
The Vintage Vacuum Pump is 24.5" tall, by 21.25" across by handle, by 16.25 wide. The glass globe is 8" tall by 8" across.
