Thanks, I think it is way cool too. I had to post a picture of it as soon as I got home with it, i was too excited to try and clean it up. And even with it all rusted, the mechanism is nice and smooth to operate. I can almost guarantee that my Dad hasnt used it in 30 years so I think that is impressive. I think this is one piece of brewing gear that SWMBO wont actually mind being left out, as she loves antiques.
