Lee Needler's Hydrant Collection

"I am a tool and die maker in Meadville, Pennsylvania (Toolcity, USA). I started collecting and refinishing hydrants in the spring of 2002. I find it a very relaxing hobby. My wife thinks I'm nuts (although I'm allowed to display a couple inside). I like to refer to my finished hydrants as 'handsome units' or 'just little slices of Americana'."
