    Drums out of washing machines make dandy firepits! Standar weber kettle grills fit perfectly on this also. Makes a good hickory steak!

    I have used the tumbler out of many a dryers to remove stumps---they also make a great camp-fire ring as well as a decent cooker fire.

    If you need a back yard target, the dryer "shell" works out real nice;

    When I was a kid running banklines on the Chariton with dad, we used washer tubs to keep our fish in until we decided to skin em. Made a great live well.

    Lost more than one tub of fish though when the river rose in the night. When the water goes over the top, the fish swam out.

    Years ago when I worked at Fridgidare my job was to put them on a press that punched the holes and another press that tested the seam weld. Pick one up 4 different times and do about 1000 a night. I bid out of that job for a different one real quick.
  11. Never thought of this... I saw a bunch of old washers get distroyed as they bulldozed homes to make way for a shopping center. Now, I will be looking for them!

    I think you could go to any Lowe's and get one from behind the building. (Call first).

    I've seen where someone took an old Weber grill and buried the bottom portion partially in the ground for a fire pit. Just put the lid on when you're done.:D
