18" Thumbscrew Bar-B-Q-Kettle
« on: December 03, 2012, 10:43:45 AM »
Thanks to Duke, i got this off of CL as a package deal (more on the others later) It is an 18" grey Bar-B-Q-Kettle thumbscrew, rivet handle and steel wheeled kettle.  It is in great shape, almost think it was kept in a garage, a few rust spots, on the thumbscrews and a little on the triangle.

By what i have read on the main page it figures to be from 62 to 68 or so? Any guess on a closer time frame?
Any how on to pictures!

Congratulations on that awesome score Ron! I also want to thank you for sending me the utensil rack that I love so much! I want to post pictures of it, but I can't seem to find my camera wire to upload pictures right now.  :(

Thanks for posting pics Ron....that is a great score.  Considering the age, that 18" beauty is in great condition.

Awesome, I like that, very nice shape...It has to be between 1963 and 1967.  The thumbscrews were gone by 1968 and the wood handles were started in 1963....
