Title: Gen 1 MT collection
Post by: bladz on October 05, 2018, 08:32:10 PM
Update:  Number 8 has arrived!

After reading (edit) @Mike in Roseville s post about things being slow for the WKC forums  and I agree with him, I must admit I am guilty of being one of the members here that ďlurkĒ but never really participate as much as I should. 
 
I apologize for that because I really appreciate what it takes to rescue, restore (maybe....I have more dirty grills than clean ones!) and respect the one thing we all gather here to enjoy.

With that being said, I promise to be a more active member, and hope to get the other lurkers like me to take the time to participate more for the better of the community.

Iíll start out by posting my 3+ year project of trying to amass all of the original Gen 1 MasterTouches.

Here is the order and how I acquired them.

Blue EZ  code. Found on Green Bay WI CL add in 2015.
Red Fade EI code. Found on Madison WI  CL add 2016.
Green EE code. Found on local CL add in 2016.

So Iím thinking I found 3 in about a year shouldnít be too hard to find at least a few more. Seems the MTís were harder to come by than I realized.

Gray EZ code. Northern WI CL add 2017.
Tyler @tb6844.  I notify Tyler of a gray MT in Rhinelander WI. He grabs it uses it for a year and then sells it to me in 2018. Thanks Tyler...itís time we meet  again for some more grill dealings

Burgundy EO code.  2018 Mike @brewtownbeatdown. I contact Mike about selling his burgundy MT. He mentions the same guy that sold him his burgundy MT may have another one.   He did!

Red O code. 2018. Racine WI CL add. Brewtown to the rescue again. This is more than likely a OTPlus, but fits in just fine.
I think Mike could build a better MT collection in half the time it took me. He was ruthless in trying to help me find grills. 
Mike also delivered both grills to me at the Chicago meet up.
Thanks for all your help Mike.

Black EZ code.  2018.- Trade with Brian @zavod44.  Itís always a pleasure meeting up with you and exchanging stories......and grills!
Thanks Brian.

Iím still searching for a Coppermist MT, so if anyone has a spare one to get rid of please let me know.

Dennis

Nice collection and really cool photo. They look like Vikings with their shields up repelling an arrow deluge.

Thanks Jim, but please do not bring up the word ďVikingsĒ again[emoji6]. This is Packer country thank you!  lol.

It's a brownie / copper mist in semi-rough shape, "D" (Demo) stamp, all pieces except for the therm in the lid......

.....Happy 8th !!!

Iíd like to thank @1buckie for adding the finishing touch to my Gen 1 MasterTouch collection.  Thank you so much Ken for offering up this rare grill to me.
Words canít describe how grateful I am to you. It really goes to show how unselfish this group of people really are.

It was a wonderful packing job, and supplied me with an ample amount of bubble wrap that I really needed right now to ship out a grill  to another member.  He even included a new set of sweeps for the grill, an unexpected inclusion.

I only had a small amount of time to unbox and take a few pictures before we left to visit relatives this weekend. Hopefully within the next week I will get them all lined up for the ultimate Gen1 MT photo shoot.

Hereís a few unboxing pics.

This is a very cool club with a lot of unselfish members. Good for you both on that sweet deal. Also so nice to get the much needed bubble wrap.

SO glad I could help complete this picture (the soon-to-be 8 MT photo!!)

I wasn't getting the time or motivation together to properly fix this up, so it just made sense to put the end cap on someone's collection.....

I have several other Kettles that were had w/ the expressed intent of passing along to folks who might want something older, but decent shape."...computer has been down for some months & I'm using the wife's I-pad from time to time to check in here, but I'll get that situation sorted out soon  & get some pics going ( real hard to do w/ the pad)

@1buckie  aka: Ken has been legend here for all time. Lots of you may not know him. This is your chance! Back in the day (well, four years ago) he was profiled when we thought a "Featured Member" thing would be cool. It WAS cool! After Ken though, it was tough to come up with someone else that fit the bill as well as he did (does) so it kind of got dropped. If you watch Vikings, think if him as the Floki of WKC.

Youíre a grate fella for helping another grate fella.  Itís an awesome feeling to help someone fulfill their collection, whether itís something from your collection, or being the finder/agent. 

BTW, there is a #9 thatíll be heading to his collection[emoji848].  As much as I love that baby, Dennis will be the ultimate caretaker.
