Yet Another Hand Crank

Dazey Butter Churn – 1940’s

And now for something completely different…

The Dazey company made these hand cranked butter churns up to 1945, earlier models had an open gear drive while the later models seem to have copied the Blow butter churn that was made in England.

The covers were in poor shape and the inside of the gearbox looks like spiders had taken up residence at some point. The wooden impellers and handle were in very nice condition and since I plan to make butter with this, that is important.

I touched up the covers and think I will give them another fine sanding and a few more coats of enamel before I put on a final clear coat.
