'For the first time I have noticed your updated web page, very interesting. You do it professionally. I hope there will be many who find it and react in your favour'.

The foot pump 'is a joy to use'. 'It is certainly a smooth action and even on rough ground the pump is stable'.

'Thanks very much for being so helpful in solving the problem - never had the Sutty working so well! Although these pumps could be regarded as somewhat mundane in this "digital" age, it is a sad fact that these well engineered, distinctively individual and extremely durable pumps from this vintage period will never ever be manufactured again, so its well worth the efforts of enthusiasts such as yourself in helping preserve these little pieces of motoring history, which can still be a pleasure to use today in a very practical way. Thanks again for help & expertise.'

 

 

'Thanks for your acknowledgement and details of repairs - much appreciated and thanks for the background technical information'.

'It was a pleasure to discover your website - I had just bought a cheap modern foot pump (the last one having destroyed itself after a short life) which fell apart on its first tyre, so I set about trying to find an older and better quality pump second hand, and found your site via google. It is so satisfying to find someone who believes in quality and in having things work as they should.'

'The pump arrived and I was able to try it last night - it is superb! The quality of your restoration is excellent, and the information you have given about its military purpose adds to the sense of this being an object of true value, in stark contrast to the throwaway footpumps available new.'

 

'Thankyou again for all the time and effort you have put into this project. I wish you every success.'

I have been out on my mountain bike with some friends since 8am this morning and have only just got home. It was a nice surprise to arrive home to my lovely Sutty Foot Pump, you have done an amazing job and I am really pleased with the finished article. Thank You so much for all the additional history and fact sheets about the Sutty Pump, this is brilliant and all adds to the authenticity of my overall bigger restoration project on my Range Rover. When the car is finished and the foot pump is in place, I will send you a picture.

 

Thanks again, I am very pleased with my pump and very grateful to you.

Just to let you know that the hose arrived safely. I am very pleased with the work and many thanks for overhauling the DESMO valve connector. I have re-assembled the pump and it works very well. Thanks for all your help and advice, its been a real pleasure. somewhere I have an old (and decrepid) Dunlop footpump which I may now restore!! (that's after I have redecorated two bedrooms and overhauled the garden fence).

 

Best Wishes

Thank You. The hose and fittings arrived this morning. Just what I wanted. The connector for attaching the hose to the pump body has exactly the right thread diameter and pitch and therefore fits perfectly. I will get the cheque in post today.

 

Thanks again for the help you have given me by supplying these parts. If you are interested I will send you some photographs of the car with the pump in place, which will hopefully be later this year if I'm able to complete the painting of the body shell.

 

Best Wishes

I found your site a few months ago when researching Sutty pumps. Up until yesterday I only had hand pumps, but your webpages have inspired me and I kept an eye out while attending a swap meet in rural Victoria, Australia.

 

I came away with 3 foot pumps: DUCO - only marked on the pedal. Sutty Giant - a large footpump and it has a large decal on the cyclinder, well marked Nesthill Jupiter - slightly smaller than the Sutty Giant. No obvious brass fittings as you describe on your webpages.

I received the PCL pump at around 8.30 this morning! I tested it on an old tyre I have and it seems just fine to me, so thanks for your work. I posted a cheque to you yesterday so you should get it either today or tomorrow-any probs with non arrival etc. just let me know. Thanks again.

The quality of your restoration is excellent. The standard of your work, the help you gave me in choosing a pump and the follow up advice so freely given leads me to say, without reservation, that 'there aren't many like you around any more!

Thanks you very much for the washer replacement kit and instructions sent to my father to help him restore his Kismet Duplex Master. The pump now works perfectly and he is enthusiastically touring the island, blowing everthing up to within an inch of its life.

I'm extremely pleased with the Walters and Dobson pump. Thank you for keeping alive products that have a rightful place in the nation's heritage. I hope your work will continue to bring satisfaction, not only to customers but yourself

"Mr Edwards is truly a 'Pump Expert' of the old school. He made for me a replacement washer for my vintage G.P.O. WAD pump and when a problem occurred for me while fitting it, he made a second washer at no extra charge, and the friendly advice to fit it correctly. All this by return of post after the process of making these washers.

All in all, a very pleasant experience, a new friend, and a perfectly working pump. 100% satisfaction attained.

 

Mike, April 2017, Sussex."
