Patent pending Avocado 🥑
« on: May 05, 2018, 02:10:15 PM »
I was heading to pick up a Craigslist 73-75 18.5 red kettle.   As I’m loading it up, he says he has “other” kettles.  I ask if I can look and he shows me his patent pending avocado in decent shape.  I make an offer on the spot, and he accepts.  My lucky day!   Just got it home.  Needs some love but nothing our club has not taught me to do.  RRR.

Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalkupdate: she’s cleaned up and ready to be fired up.  Lots of elbow grease and cleaning, but it was fun!   This club gave me all the resources to do it right.  Thanks.  Interestingly, the inside of the bowl has a ton of overspray from the factory.
