Many years ago, the family owned a machine shop... My dad was a Machinist (Tool & Die), my ubcle was a Mechanical Engineer, and my Grandpa was a Master Machinist (I think).. I have many fond memories of the smells of machine oil and burnt metal, oxy-acetylene, spot welding, and so on. Over the life of the business, "we" built many things, but the biggest (and final) were these pumping units.

If I remember correctly, the colors are as follows:
Orange: 2:1, Orange:Red
Brown: 2:1, Brown:Black
