    Pretty pricey, but it sure would be a fun thing to try out. It's getting hard for us to find kerosene these days, and the jugs at Lowe's and Home Depot are way overpriced. I wonder how much kerosene it uses over 21 days....

    Let us know if you get one!

    My Grandfather had one and used it from time to time, usually around Easter for us grandkids. It was passed down to him from his dad so that would have made it 80 some years old when he used it for us. It was sold at auction after he passed [​IMG] Such a waste I would give anything for it now.

    I would say it is easier to get hold of one in areas where large populations of amish live. SOmebody gave the Lehman website, they are the best. I just live a few miles from there.
