Old Buck Saw 28″ Blade with 27″ handle. Good condition and ready to use. 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 ½ inches
Made from top quality sap clear white oak.
Plain interior, no paraffin.
“We don’t 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 unwelcome bugs!

From Bill Hoover The Village Tinsmith
After 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.
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.
