Whatcha find Wednesday

It's that time of the week. It's Whatcha find Wednesday. This week we have a few things to show you.

First we have a genuine Louisville Slugger. An acquaintance we know used to do some work for the Cincinnati Reds and gave this to us.

Not only is it an awesome bat, but, a great defence mechanism. You can keep it in the car in the event you ever need to use it for self defence and it is not considered a weapon such as a gun or knife. Another outlook, is if you get stuck anywhere and need to build a fire for warmth, you have wood available.

Next, we have an old/work cart. It's not one of the cheap ones you use at Lowe's to  push around large or heavy items. It is very solid and heavy duty.

Lenny decided to go ahead and rehab it by giving it a fresh coat of paint. In the top picture you only see the frame. Lenny had removed the wood bed when he went to paint it. I told him if we ever come across any more of these to snag them because it is pretty neat and will be pretty handy to have around. It came with the capability to either use as a push cart or you can hitch it to the lawn mower. There is hitching capability on the other end to attach additional carts.

Finally we have what I came across yesterday. Just some things to add to our hedge against inflation/scrap pile. A couple oven hoods and a stainless steel oven top.

I was surprised to see what good of condition the oven top was in. Plus attached to it was an electrical box. Lenny, being an electrician, knows the value of electrical supplies. If you were to go out and buy a cheaper new box it would cost you around $3. This box is older and was manufactured with a thicker metal.

This week has been pretty exciting moving the chickens around, acquiring a rabbit and building it's new home, planting new trees, and making raised beds. With these little treasures that have come our way, our week just got a little bit better.

I hope every one's week is full or fun and happiness and until next time happy hunting.
