Red 18" MBH
« on: October 11, 2014, 12:58:56 PM »
I picked this up today, a 18" Red MBH, it is in pretty good shape for being 50 something years old  ;D  It has one chip in the bowl about the size of a quarter and around the handle on the lid, it is gunked up and needs some thumb screws, the wheels are in decent shape but one has cracks in the rubber so i'll have to figure how to fix that.



Wanted: 18" Platinum any color will work
This is my Kettle there are many like it but this one is mine......

What a beauty - the red appears nice and glossy still too, they must have used a cover :)

Great find Ron!
