This web page is an ongoing
research page focusing on American built fire extinguishers.
There have been untold hundreds of thousands of fire extinguishers
manufactured by various companies. These alone can be broken
down into different chemical types, sizes and manufacturers.
Each manufacture may have made the same kind of extinguisher
with a variety of different labels. This
web page will focus on the American made, vintage,
brass, one quart size. These were
generally used for home use, cars, planes, trains, and boats.
The main reason for starting this web page, and where the research is concentrated on for now are the vintage Chris Craft boats or General fire extinguishers. Every Chris Craft boat starting in the 1920's came with one and it is listed so as being on the hull card. Yet finding the "correct" model and style seems to be a vague subject. This just lead to other interesting extinguishers and questions.
Input or contributions in the way of material to this web page would be appreciated. By building information to this web page we can assist the people that are into restoration projects and perhaps looking for the proper fire extinguisher for their vehicle. Documented material (actual old pictures) or brochures with dates are the best source for reliable documentation.
W A R N I N G : THIS WEB SITE IS DESIGNED FOR HIGH SPEED MODEMS.I apologize for the large downloads. But the pictures tell the story here. If you are interested in this material, it is well worth the wait. After all, this is the ONLY place you will find information regarding this subject matter.
