Default Lister pump ??

Am I right in thinking that this is a Lister pump? ISTR made by Lister apprentices or some such?

Philip,

It looks like one of the H range but appears smaller than the H1, another one of your finds.

I believe the Lister pumps were made just down the road by Godwins?

Never seen a brass one before, or a chain driven one without the cross shaft. Nice find Phillip.

Last week I had my lister vertical pump OB1 at Dorset and there was an identical pump which was made by Godwins of Dursley.

Hi Philip,

I've seen another one of these some years back (I think Dennis Hornby had it), and he noted that half a dozen or less were made, and yes, made by the Lister Apprentices. I've got no more evidence to substantiate beyond that.

Paul.

I have seen one and was of the understanding that they were made for pumping chemicals that would erode cast iron.

That looks very nice, but I'm guessing very rare, which is a shame, for me

Thanks everyone, and especially Paul for confirming my initial thoughts (I didn't know that Dennis might have one, must ask him).

It's not my pump unfortunately, belongs to a friend who asked me to identify it.

Phillip
