That's it, I also found another place for after market parts. [url]http://www.pressurecooker-outlet.com/406qt.htm[/url]

I have the old beast cooling now filled with 6 beef shanks, onions and mushrooms for tomorrow. I also have the new presto cooking some freezer burnt turkey wings and necks for my killer Shih Tzu. I'll debone it and save it for times when I eat taco's, he'll eat spaghetti but doesn't like taco seasoning or chili for some reason. Must be the cumin.

And I'm just starting to fry some bream and bass for supper after replacing soffit and fascia on the house that just sold then loading up my sister's jelly/jam business for a farmers market tomorrow. I'm too busy for a Friday.

Looks like 1/8 NPT threads on the vent pipe.
If it were me I would go with an all American vent pipe and weight.

Does that thing let out steam or jiggle while it is cooking?

Once the over pressure plug seals the jiggler lets out steam from 5 lbs up to 15 lbs. It's not a jiggler but a spring loaded pressure release valve.

I do need to change it out to be safe, I trust the jiggler compared to this. I checked the new Presto and it's smaller than this, I think it's 1/4". I think I'll have to use a Mirro set up.

Worth1 March 10, 2017 10:40 PM

There are two types of Mirro one is 1/8 NPT and it looks just like the All American.
Then they make one that is like the newer presto with the nut on the bottom of the vent tube.

Isn't that, like, an oxymoron?

Okahy now that we have man eating dogs out of the way back to the old Kook Kwick Canner.

I cant remember if I said this before because sometimes I type out a bunch of stuff and delete it.
Don't ask me why I just do.

Here after much research is the evolution of the Kook Kwick as I know it.
We start with one sort of like my first little one with the clamping bolts but it is a clamp that swings up and the bolt end clamps to the top of the canner into a retaining hole.
Next is one like mine that it like the All American.
Then it evolves into one with a band and the tapered body and lid with no gasket.
Next we have one called the merit Kook Kwick pressure cooker and canner.
This one is just like the Presto.
Next is one like the one I have now with a gasket than can be easily made out of just about anything, NEVER leather.
Leather is (((NEVER))) used for steam gaskets.
The best I can determine my last one was made during WWII in the 40's.
The fit an finish is lacking and very rough compared to the older ones.
I see this as a way to mass produce these canners due to the demand and the war effort.
Utilitarian/but functional so to speak.
This is where I came to a stop on what I wanted to do.
Today I decided to finish the canner parts to what they ((should)) look like not what they looked like out of the factory.

The side handles were driving me crazy, they were of a very rough casting I simply could not deal with.:no:

You be the judge rough casting or cleaned up.
I also have my first meal picked out.
it is amazing how sometimes free food just walks up to you begging to be cooked.
My only decision to make is should I cure him or cook him fresh?
Collar on or off?:))

I told him to sit and be still and he did.
I had to rotate him so I could take the pictuer.
Darn dog loves me to death.:lol:
I'm thinking about texting his owner and saying.
I'm working on an old pressure cooker Monty is helping.:cute:
