          So that's how it's done eh? I'll be darned. If someone had said it's applied like your tinning a seam for lead fill I couldn't have been more dumb founded at the news. A very informative read, thanks Franz.
          Having seen those old copper pots at 2nd hand stores and garage sales, my thought as I walked by have always been , "that's nasty". I'll be taking a second look with that knowledge in hand to give it a try in the future.
          As for the kid spending his money for copper sheet...I wish and only in his dreams. I'm not passing that idea along to him.

          And if we end up in the pokey, I'm sure a cell mate like Franz would make the time go by quickly!

            Unfortunately for me I don't have enough shelving space or room in the shop to keep things I don't use. to old now to care or worry about it, but I do love to eat ice cold sweet watermelon.

              I'm getting to that point myself, however, I'm still piling stuff up so I'm not there yet. I do agree, you can't beat a cold slice of sweet watermelon, simple pleasures.

                Noel, I had some yesterday that was the sweetest watermelon I ever ate. Like you say, simple pleasures can brighten ones day.

                  Noel nasty pots are a walk in the park IF you know the tricks..

                  I grabbed a expensive set of Revereware in a sale one day for a buck because the family's child had used them camping over a wood fire and wasn't smart enough to coat the outside of the pans with Ivory soap.
                  Little woman informed me they were close to a $500 set. OK.. Too bad they were so smoked up. RIGHT.

                  They were very bright copper after some cleaning. Little Brasso and she was thrilled with them.

                  30+ years back bunch of young women and some high end chefs all wanted copper bowls. The ones they wanted were the same bowls nobody wanted when the Fanny Farmer factory auctioned off. I made a few bucks swapping scrap copper for dirty bowls and cleaning them. They tarnish a bit over 30 years, and I really need to Brasso mine.

                            1 less item in my garage as of this afternoon.
                            I got rid of a 1850 watt Coleman genset some fool put at the curb for garbage day because he left it sit in a humid garage and the piston got stuck in the bore. I donated it to a young man who spends a lot of days on the road away from home keeping America's supply of Fast Slop on buns going down the necks of young children. He spends many nights in motels and has time to put the head back on and get it back running. His wife now has one more thing to complain about too, till they need a generator. I have no understanding why she complains since she owns her own Hobart MIG machine and autodark helmet.

                            General information, it takes 3 years, 7 months and 9 days for Marvel Mistery Oil to break a stuck piston loose that was stuck by rust.

                              My neighbor when I lived in a subdivision some 30 years back had trouble with his Oldsmobile V6 engine, so one of his friends at work told him to put Marvel Mystery oil in the engine, after he did it when he drove the car down the road it sounded like a steam engine. When we took the air cleaner off it was full of oil, seems the mystery oil cleaned the carbon so well compression was going by the rings and pressurizing the crankcase, blowing oil out the carb.

                                Just yesterday I put the last of my marvel mystery oil in the cylinder of a buddy of mine's motorcycle.

                                Don't ask me about the motor cycle. All I know about them things is that most of them have only two wheels.
