The colour fades as it dries, but it can still look pretty nice. Unfortunately I haven't met any woodturners willing to pay for product or to take less than 10 minutes selecting a block.😕 I'd gladly give them one if the'd just hurry it up.

Hubby says your lights might have a "Mogul base" (The bulb socket in the center has a larger diameter (an E39 or E40 mogul base) than a regular E26 or E27 Edison screw light socket, and is typically made of cast porcelain for the higher temperatures. Wikipedia) It is possible to get an Edison adapter that screws into the socket if the mechanical aspects of replacing the socket end up being a problem, but he agrees that if the wiring look old, replacing it with new is a good idea as the vinyl they cover wires with has a definite shelf-life.

It holds about 15 gallons of liquid. When you want to pour it out you turn the crank and it moves very smoothly. I may never use the steam heating function, but I'm going to use this for something, probably soap making. But if I have 200 people over for soup, it may be used for that. It's unfortunate that it's here in Canada. I could really use this thing in the Philippines, where all of the ingredients for soap making are so much cheaper and labor is $7 a day. But I'll figure something out.
