Wife is making some home made ice cream as I type. It's churning still, but should be finished soon. I can hear the motor is starting to drag as it thickens. Flavor is "Strawberry Cheesecake". I tasted some of the bit of mix still in the bowl....it's gonna be goooooood! Oops...gotta get off here....she just shut her down. Desert time!

Dan-What's this motor thing? I thought they were hand crank. You probably have automatic milkers for the cows too, eh?:smile1:

Nra....it WAS good, but all gone! Actually had some left, & stuck in the freezer. Not nearly as good as fresh made, but still good. Jack, you just made me realize.....I need to build one to turn off my MF or Bush Hog rear pto! :bigrofl:
At a local show, they turn a large ice cream maker with a hit & miss engine.

Sounds good, Daniel! I haven't made any this year. I'd like to find a big churn so I could make ice cream for our family reunion.

You just gave me one heck of an idea! You know the Cub 123 w/tiller I just got? That little contraption on the rear that drives the tiller can drive just about anything.... I bet I can hook it up to an ice cream freezer with the right amount of pulley reduction and be in the ice cream making business in short order! That would be a fun little project.....

I did a little internet searching, last night, and found a sight where you can purchase 5 gallon ice cream freezers. They have a pulley already mounted on the drive shaft so you can hook it right up to an engine or motor.

I don't think I'll be ordering one though... they wanted over $1200.00!!!!!

On the other hand... I saw a guy, at a Threshing Show, with four of those 5 gallon freezers mounted on a hay rack. They were all connected to a line shaft that was being driven by his steam engine. They had a little stand where they put the ice cream into small foam coffee cups and sold them for $1.00 each. You could look in any given direction, for the entire day, and see hundreds of people walking around with those foam cups. I guess it wouldn't take real long to get those freezers paid off!

Just one large freezer at my local show, but same thing, $1 for little cup. Everyone had one eating ice cream & they made it as fast as they could.
