    I use some garden hose slit lengthwise.
    make sure it is hot dipped galvanised not elctroplated.
    You may have better luck looking for stainless steel

    We will be passing through soon I will keep Mt. Hope in mind for a rest stop. We want a windmill and deep well pump for the farm, as well a chain pump for the cistern. It is easy to get feeling nostalgic when looking at the Lehman's catalogue. I have their Hot Water From Your Wood Stove publication. Following through with that project is on my galvanized bucket list.

    I use bucket handles which snap on the wire handle or as a replacement when the original plastic ones crack.

    You will have to go to Keim lumber in Charm just to see the tools and exotic woods and great prices

    Thanks for the lead, That looks like quite a store. Youngstown is our halfway point. It would be a neat area for a day off from driving. Miss wants to walk on the tow path near Boston OH on her way to Boston MA. I get such tunnel vision for getting the drive over that I don't want to stop. Last time we made the trek was 2017. Coincidentally we scored an antique galvanized bucket from the ruins of Great Aunts summer camp on that trip.

    For a lot of the basics and good quality you might check out Lehmanís.

    The first place I would look is at a good farm supply store. Often they carry higher quality items.

    Tractor Supply, Agrisupply and Rural King stores should all carry them. Probably Home Depot, Lowes and Ace Hardware too.

    And those Wizard Of Oz plays ainít helping anything !

    If you have time on your hands, that whole area of Northeast Ohio is home to some of the finest and most beautiful farm country you'll ever see.

    Not too far off I71 in the Southwest part of the state is Wright Patterson AFB and the home of the Air Force Museum. It is a magnificent attraction and well worth a visit.

    Mom and Dad spent the year following their marriage in Hershey, PA. They still wax on, glossy eyed, about that year! We spent a summer in downtown Cleveland, in the port, in-between Chinese ships. One loading scrap and another unloading steel coil. I am ready for a better view! I love to read about the Wright Brothers and have Dayton on the bucket list as well.

    I-75 or I-70 actually. Well worth the visit. Truly impressive.

    The Armstrong Air and Space Museum is in Wapakoneta, OH, about an hour North on I-75.

    My old stomping grounds. Spent a good deal of time at Wright-Pat, and mainly at my hospital teaching the Air Force CRNA residents.

    One of my clients passes along his Air Force Magazines. It is interesting to see that they have become Air & Space Force magazines. Thinking about Buckeye pride, I enjoyed the article on Captan Eddie Rickenbacker. These are great leads. We will need to plan a more leisurely trip in the near future.
