I am looking for a daboll fog trumpet, powered by air compessor. Would love to see on in a museum or lighthouse somewhere, but even better if I could find one to purchase. Havent had any luck in my search. Any suggestions or leads would be appreciated tremendously!!

It would surprise me if it is for sale. Fortunately nowadays we try to keep the equipment where it belongs, on the lighthouses. I can understand your wish to possess it but I think we're all better off when industrial heritage is preserved in its "natural" environment.
I found the link just by googling a bit, so it will not be too difficult to find more of these fog trumpets.
