Alright, I'm going to retire my 1950's Woodman. She is a thing of beauty. Well used. Well loved and in perfect working order. Yeah, it has some creosote and honey stains. The finish has a great patina. She is graceful when compared to smokers today. She is a 10" x 3" Beauty with original bellows. But, she is ready for the shelf to be admired as a workhorse, friend and piece of art.
So, I ordered a Kelly 10". I've been using it for a week and it is okay. But, I miss the ol' girl. I've been seeing the Rauchboys mentioned on the net and I am wondering are they worth it? Is the workmanship like the old girl? Is it one that my grandson could use? Are any of you using them?
