Re: sediment bowl filter issue

I like the ones Snyders sells better than the Bratton ones with a coil spring that has to be centered.Snyders installs easier and more reassuring.

Re: Varco Model A luggage rack on Ebay

It sold quick but they are still made available at Varco and now powder coated.I just think the wood slat ones look better but I just wanted to know if this was a correct one.

Varco Model A luggage rack on Ebay

There is a NOS Varco luggage rack on Ebay. Is this more what the original ones looked like in 1929 or so? No wood slats,says it was a 1980's repro item.
