    I would almost, almost drive to Wisconsin from Massachusetts to get all that for just $600. I'm getting too old for road trips.

    Hey Patrick, I wrote to the Craig's lister and got some more info...


    "The pan is English tin, one chamber, and flat. No idea on brand. I purchased it in Antigo. Probably came from Reynolds Sugar Bush in Aniwa, WI.
    * 3 hydrometers 2 syrup an 1 sap.
    * 75+ taps. Plastic/tubing, metal and cast. several plastic taps set-up with two taps feeding into one 5 gal. jug. Works great!
    * 3 filter bags orlon and wool.
    * 2 - 5 gal. collecting buckets
    * 50 - 2 and 21/2 gal metal and plastic sap pails/lids.
    * some glass ware and lids. 12oz. bottles."

    Looks a bit rough to me but do you still think it's worth the money? (hope these pics post).

    How's that saying about horses go? Ridden hard and put away wet. That arch has made a LOT of syrup. At least I hope it did.

    Lynxi, thanks for that follow up.

    Those cheese curds are still tempting....

    Default Stainless Coffee Urns on Craigslist

    I came across this ad this morning. 3 or 5 gallon stainless coffee urns. Not sure if they have heating elements in them or not. Located somewhere in Cleveland area.
