It would be nice as a display item for someone I guess.

Its a reminder that sometimes "old" items may contain toxic metals or chemicals

Yes, like house paint and cement sheet housing :oops:. And all that old footage of dudes on warships wearing asbestos hoods while the guns were firing.

A new pump washer and a cleanup daresay the sprayer would be good for another 50 years of use. Unlike the so called sprayers nowadays which last probably one season and then fall to pieces or wear out.

That would make a great solar shower if thoroughly cleaned out with scouring pads first...
