Cast iron sinks like this cost a lot.
>>
I am a third-generation plumber and my family collected a bunch of old sinks from the 1920s on... now I refurb them and sell them to people on Hollywood and Walnut Creek in California for about $3,800 a pop. (With new gaskets )
>>
>>
Roadside find, Craigslist or what?

What is the coolest looking sink you have seen

It was just sitting in a cabinet in this old guy's house!
>>

Nice. I saw the Craiglist free section thread earlier so I checked mine and there are like 10 free pianos lol

Apparently they're not worth scrapping.

Most Americans are actually very poor compared to how the present themselves online and in the media. That's why they dumpster dive and rob things from renovation sites etc

Give it back Jamal.

Stole it from mcdonalds

Pianos cost money to haul away because they're big and heavy.
If you want a piano, though, you can get one for the price of a box truck rental if you have some friends to help.
I even saw a baby grand on the free section of craigslist somebody in the wealthy part of town was getting rid of.

It costs a lot to tune them, and they are all always out of tune

It's mostly suburban women that think old fashioned country stuff is charming. The same people that have special mason jars for drinking, or have decorations made out of cracked paint and galvanized metal.

A sink and bathtub carved out of redwood. That was in bill blanton's house, the designer of the sr71 backbird. I was his plumber before he died. His house was incredible and I plan on building a carbon copy soon.
>>
>>2292889
I also used to install professional kitchens in the LA area when I was younger and did a lot of work for celebrities. Sometime around the Dogma era I got a client referral via George Carlin (who was surprisingly very nice and great to work for, good taste in design too). Turns out it was Garafalo. Just a pure pain in the ass. She called me to schedule an entire remodel of her kitchen and I arranged a walk through and estimate for the following week. She called me EVERY FUCKING DAY between the estimate and first call. “Hey how is my kitchen going at the kitchen factory?” Lady I don’t know yet because I haven’t even fucking been to your house for an estimate. I pushed the estimate forward just to stop the phone calls. When I finally got to her house it was a disaster. Dog piss everywhere, and small little piles of adult diapers littered the floor. She said she was having plumbing problems but this was months of diapers built up. It was also really hot in there, like 90 degrees in February. Combined with heat it was like a piss sauna, impossible to breath in there. She asked about insane shit like why we don’t carpet out countertops to make them softer and if it was possible to make the water a different color. She also asked to make the refrigerator warm, to keep food hot. The refrigerator was full of friskies cans. I took some measurements and got the fuck out. I checked the thermostat on the way out, she had it set to 98. When she saw me glance at it she said “oh yeah, 98 because it’s human temp”. She called me every four hours after that asking for her “carpet kitchen” and if it was ready to “plug in to the house”. I ended up passing the job on to another contractor.

He looks like a stoic little murderer who hasn't have a genuine feeling in like 20 years. If this were a movie he'd meet a beautiful, troubled young girl and fall in love with her, then he'd try to leave his hitman career for her and end up dying in the process, but not before making sure his love got away and with all his savings.

Looks like they were taking dumps in the sink. Man, ever since Epstein, we're finding more and more disturbing things about the rich and powerful.

Brush on a rust remover or use a rust converting primer.

I've seen a few house flippers complain about how hard it is to demolish old floated mortar walls in showers from that era. These demons think it's backwards that things weren't just made to throw away.

I have two of those showers, and I am dreading the demo.

The facet valves were leaky. Where can I order these gaskets?
>>
>>2295712
Go to a hardware store and pick up is universal mixed gasket set, find one the right diameter should be about a 16th less than the end of that and it will have about quarter inch before a taper that goes down to about 3/8.

they are also hot garbage because the faucets prevent you from putting buckets in the sink

before PE barrels were a thing almost everything was stored in wooden barrels.

i see more problems when it dries and the wood shrinks, like old water mill wheels from wood if they keep running and stay wet they last decades, if there shut off and dry then get rained wet then dry again they break down really fast.

The new strainer worked out.

I'm still in the process of repainting the bottom of the sink. Using penetrating oil on the rusted parts soaked into the paint and shows through new layers so I have to strip it and degreaser it.
