Old Buck Saw
28" Blade with 27"
Good condition and ready to
This type of saw was carried on a lot
of wagons. The one
we ship you may not be an exact
match to the one pictured but it will be of equal quality.
Of all the grub that's
put out for men to eat,
And all that includes apple pie to rare red meat,
The cook who wins the prize is the one who's in the know,
And at breakfast, dinner, and supper, feeds them sourdough.
He's hunted the hills since daylight for gold,
It's bent his back and made him old,
But he comes in at night, his face all aglow,
A-knowin' he's gonna get beans and sourdough.

Sour Dough Keg
Two Gallon size
12 inches x 7 ˝ inches
Made from top quality sap clear white oak.
Plain interior, no
think the old Chuck Wagon Cooks had their kegs paraffin lined but we
have had people ask if we thought the wood would impart a flavor to
the Sour Dough. We don't know for sure so if you want it Paraffin
lined just choose paraffin lined on order form and for an additional
$4.00 we will line it with Paraffin."
If using the plain unlined keg the first batch of sour dough should
be thrown out. The first batch seasons the keg. Also rinse the keg
with scalding water before starting your first batch to kill any
After doing some research
it is our opinion that enamelware cups and plates were not used
on Chuck Wagons in the cattle drive days. They used tin, and the
plate we offer above is a replica of the plate used during the
Civil War days. The cattle drives started after the Civil War.
We don't recommend
washing tin in the dishwasher. They should be washed and rinsed
in very hot water and hand dried. They should also be stored
inside where the air is dryer. Remember, this is tinware and
there's a reason you don't see much very old tinware.
Tin Plate and Cup
We have found a
better quality tin cup which is made in America . (shown to the
left) This is a pint size cup. Good quality and not as prone to rust
as the other. Do not put in dishwasher. Wash and rinse in very hot
water and dry thoroughly. Store in a dry environment.

using your items for an event, wash and dry them well when you
get home. This is for all potables, even blackened coffee
boilers. Do not scrub to remove the black. After drying well rub
mineral oil over each item, inside and out, and yes, even over
the blackened outsides. This oil helps preserve the tin and the
solder, and takes the place of using rendered lard as was the
practice in the 1860’s. When packing for an event, wash with
soap and water, dry well, and you are ready to go.
Our other tin cup is made with
the old hot-dipped tin method and is excellent quality but this cup
is an improved version using stainless steel with a brushed finish
that looks similar to tin. This eliminates rusting.Heavy duty and
durable and a little cheaper. 12 oz. cup $8.00 each.
Old enamelware water dippers,
white with red trim.
We usually have several on hand. All useable but some have a few chips and
minor rust. They don't make these old dippers anymore.
Hard to find.
We now have a few old gray graniteware
dippers and some black/blue/gray and white enamelware. Our choice on
colors depends on what we have on hand.
