OOOOH, a C30 Sunbeam. I have one also, along with some other glass vacuum coffee makers (Cona "D" and a mint Vaculator with heating base). You have NOT had proper coffee unless you have good beans (fresh roasted, not more than a week old - I roast my own), a good grinder, and a vacuum coffee maker. I also have a semi-pro quality espresso machine in the kitchen, so yes, I'm a bit of a coffee snob! :deathlyobsessed:

Best coffe I ever had was made in the cup you drank it out of. I spent a lot of time camping (the real deal), this cup was specifically made for camping. The cup part was all stainless with a stainless handle. You boiled plain water in the cup. Added the coffee, sugar and cream after it came to boil. It came with lid that had a plunger attached to it. the plunger had a fine mesh screen. Push the plunger down and it filter all the grounds to the bottom.

Neat! A camping version of a French press! I also like French press coffee, but always preferred the clarity of vac pot coffee vs. the residual 'mud' of press coffee.

The T-9 toaster was my parent's (I have a photo of naked baby me on the kitchen table with the toaster in the background-amazing how parents thought it was cute), as well as the top half of the C-30. I keep buying more on eBay to get more gaskets (the part that always fails). The vacuum method produces the best coffee, in my opinion.

Hey Guys, its interesting stuff to me even though I have no collection of any ofthose items. I understand pressurized gas in a blowtorch and am waiting for the glue to dry on the M80's covered in BB's(thanks bk) :) But the smudge pot is new to me is that just a oil lamp with a cannonball shape? If I could get those locally in a ceramic material that would make some serious fun in my trebuchet. Hey jerseycoal I think every house in america should have at least one potato gun! I have several hairspray powered as well as a compressed air version.... tons of fun. Jim

About that trebuchet-is that a residential or commercial model? Homemade or purchased? That's something I think I might need to have.

Hey Woodncoal it is a little residential and a little commercial because I made some, well ok most of it on company time. I dont want to mislead anyone it is still mostly untested and currently unassembled My goal was to have something I could reach out back with an average projectile(up to maybe 5 pounds) and tow behind my lawn tractor. The ultimate in redneck home protection. I just need some time and keystone light to get to it and Ill put some pictures up nowthatI know how....see gun nuts thread. Jim
