$15 Thumbscrew Texan
« on: December 20, 2020, 11:58:26 AM »
Made a short trip this afternoon to pick this rough guy up.  Probably not a cooker but the parts were worth it.  Three small tab vents and restorable metal wheels with intact rubber tread are worth $15 to me.
Leg sockets are hanging by a thread. 


Might see a new life as a planter in the spring.  It was  in the seller’s family for three generations since brand new.

Definitely worth the trip and cash

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

That's easily worth 15 bucks.

No.  I have a nicer one already.  I bought this one for the parts: the wheels and bowl vents.
