O&R Tools: One-By-One Mini Water Pump and Sno-Tiger?

Recommended Posts

Curious if anyone has, or has ever seen, the little O&R water pump called the One-By-One made by Lancaster or the Sno-Tiger (not sure who made it) which looks to be some sort of mini snow blower.

Lancaster pumps are still in business, they did sell chainsaws with O&R engines but I've not yet seen a pump using one.

Some history of Lancaster here, apparently C-B Tool Co were the manufacturer for Lancaster and they bought them out in 1978.

Orline (O&R) made the Sno-Tiger, we haven't found a survivor yet, possibly because they are fairly large and the casing is supposedly made from plastic, I imagine they were probably all thrown out when the engine stopped working or the plastic fell apart.

I bet you’re right, between the flimsy frame and all the plastic shrouds they probably didn’t fair well.  Would be fun to see a picture of a real one though...

That axle/handle set up doesn't look too substantial, I bet rust claimed a lot if they were put away wet.

 

That's certainly possible, I've also had a thought that the plastic housing could be easily damaged if it ingested anything more solid than snow (i.e. stones).
