Just got back from scrounging around my Buddy's uncles farm. I picked up an 80 gal. cane syurp
kettle(has a crack in the lip but looks ok other than the weeds growing in it), got a 5 ft. two man buck saw, 1 old cotton scale, a wheel barrow full of old glass telephone pole wire insulators,
an old saw mill saw blade over 3 ft across,various old cola bottles and medicine bottles,an old sickle bar mower(peices of it anyway) some old and rustly pie tins,a brace and a few bits,couple of cast iron pans(pretty rusty and no name than I can find) and several bars of lead babbit for pouring bearings for a can mill and the rotors out of a mill press....

got all this just for the taking...think I'll buy the buddy a case of barley pops...I get to go back over tomorrow and pick through the last has mostly plow sweeps and hiller spades in it...

its been a good day here!!!!
be back later going to clean some of this stuff up...

Hi TO, You might just be the man to find something for me. I'm in the market to buy a Brass Kettle. One that's big enough to set outside over an open fire to be used for making apple butter. It's not for me but, rather, for my cousin in western NC. We grew up together many, many years ago and the last time I saw him he asked me to keep an eye out for one. Now at his age I don't know how much he will use it. But, it would please me to give him one. So, if you or anyone that reads this, knows of one for sale, please notify me. Thanks,.....gfp

I have sold a few of the apple butter kettles, most bring around $100 in southeast MO.
here is a link to our website.

Alias, I saw one like you want sold at auction in Southern Lancaster County a couple years ago. About 3 feet diameter, maybe 2 feet deep, with a rounded bottom. It was all brass and shiny.

Memory is cloudy, but I think it brought something like $2800.

Well now,    Posted 04-01-2004 at 14:46:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
