    Bottling Dad's Root Beer In St. Louis

    Yes, Colorful. Had Burgers & Hot Dogs ect, ect, pictured on sides. Colorful indeed. Cones were slowing down & coming to a end near the mid 50's. Lasting only into to the late 50's although rumor sez 1960. Soda cones got introduced into the market much later then Beers. Beers had a almost 15...

    Getting a tumbling machine

    I never noticed any uneven wear on mine & don't flip it but I mostly use the very fine Aluminum Oxide Polish which removes very little glass. If you got a heavy duty sick Bottle & use heavy duty Tumbling Compound like 1500 grit Silicone Carbide or anything coarser for Cutting, you know, the...

    I have 45+ years experience in Collecting Beer Cans & Specializing in Beer Cans.

    I made this fake Goebel cone in about5 seconds, already had the spare cone laying around & no top on Goebel. If I was to spend a little more time grinding off Goebels top rim & sliding this fake cone into place it would look real & fool any novice, ameture, non collector. wouldn't fool a real...

    70 rpm is a little on the fast side but that's similar too mine. some will have 2 speeds, slow 40 rpm & fast 60 rpm approximately. not sure what you mean by flip? flip what, tube or bottle? I've never flipped my tube & not sure if it would make a difference? LEON.
