More recent (and flimsy) ice crusher. Had to replace the screw/nut/washers in the handle, but still a good buy from the Goodwill store.

Nice. Reminds me that I hadn't shared my Swing-A-Way crusher before now. It gets fairly regular use.



More barware finds:

Unopened pack of Marjess stirrers.



Everlast forged aluminium tumblers - these get frosty, fast!



More whistles!

I like the whistle stirs.

We went to a VFW at Christmas time in a small town it was a dance of sorts with a big band type thing going on.
Well they had candles at all the tables that were not lit.
If you wanted a drink or other service from the wait staff you lit the candle at your table, they would come right away and get your order and then blow out the candle.

How smart is that!
Why did we get away from that kind of smart thinking.

Most likely it was lazy wait people that got the owners to do away with this idea.
Just think how much more you would spend at a restaurant if this were in place where you go.

SpaceMonkey, Nice find , I luv cocktail shakers - got more than a dozen. Donít use the glass ones though, afraid I might break em while making round three.
Nice that yours has the cap. Iíve passed on some nice ones cause the cap was missing or frozen.
Cheers and keep posting.

nui 'umi 'umi - Thanks! The lid has a small ding or two and the screw cap is frozen, but at 3 bucks I couldn't pass it up.

Especially at $3 that's an excellent find.

That big Hazel Atlas shaker I posted earlier had the lid cocked and firmly stuck on when I got it. I ended up having to (very delicately!) resort to using a flat screwdriver and hammer to pop it off. You might have some luck getting the cap off by gently heating it and getting it to expand. Sometimes it's just enough to crack the corrosion and loosen it up.

Thanks Bam Bam. I just tried it with success! I filled the lid with ice and then dipped the cap into a cup of boiling water. After a few seconds of popping and cracking I was able to unscrew the cap easily.
The lid was also cocked and stuck on the shaker just as you described. Fortunately it wasn't as obstinate as yours and I was able to get it off with just my thumbs.

Came across this neat barspoon / church key combo this afternoon. Turns out it's from the old Flamingo Hotel formerly of Miami Beach.
