    Keepsake finds are great, the pottery collection Medalta, Red-wing and some no name. The old wood stove was a hoot to get out, the floor has rotted away from underneath it.

    The ice picture was from one of my travels in B.C. the minerals leached into the ice giving this splendid color.

    The scale would be great if it worked, but may have some value even if it rusted solid to the right person as a display item. A picture would help.

    The coffee maker is probably just as well scrapped un less it too works. Find a used restaraunt dealer near you on that item.

    If the Bunn is still good looking then definitely sell on Craigslist, if even just for parts.

    It is very clean - It boils the water ,the heat elements work / It just wont flow the water to pot = hence wont make coffee

    That may just be a matter of running some vinegar in it.

    The BUNN I did not realize has to always be full , once full (completely) then any extra water will flow - seems hot!!
    ----------------------
    The Scale is working, have to take a pic - this is a cool find it's max weight to hold is
    1000 lb
    It uses add on balancers (that weigh 2lb) there are 4 plates saying 200 lb each & 1 says 50 lbs,and built on the scale it has 10 lbs which takes you to weighing up to 50 lbs - so i figure i can weigh @ the max lbs .since scrapers love weighing things, me having this is a natural . 6 months ago i found two old DR office scales, which I use to keep a constant tally of bucket weight these scales go 300 lbs & also made of cast iron.
    Since the recent scale is green and yellow i figure US postal .
    but i did get it from a laundry store who also weigh clothes

    I found one the first week I started scrapping. I knew I had to keep it. It's in really good condition too.

    Even though it's usually in my way, it's handy to have it around.

    I have a Bunn home coffee maker and that makes some of the best coffee around. Yes it has to have water all the time. When I pour a pot of water in then the coffee starts almost instantly.
