    Like the zerk fitting on this one. This system has many old sprinklers but this is the most unique.

    I'm wondering how Buckner sand-casted that curved piece with the lettering.
     
  7. Had to be in a mold of some type.

    It's the inside I wonder about. You can't machine a water passage through it from the ends, because of the double curve.

    Bent post casting, then heat de-stressed. You got me on the lettering, I can ask my Grand-dad.

    Is that a grease cert?

    It looks like they were pressed post-casting also.

    I do not know what year but the house was built in 1954. Almost all the pipe is galvanized.
