I think it cost me maybe 20 or 30.00 to swap that out. I bought the parts at Lehman's hardware in Kidron.
Carolyn I can use it.
I tested the gauge, the petcock and ran it through a trial run everything functions properly.

What I may do is Change out the pressure releasing device to a weight or something else.

I also need to get a bigger pressure canner that I can use on my flat stove top.
The All American they say I cant use as it doesn't have a flat bottom but I can use the Presto.

I was in the barn the other day looking for something and saw this old thing sitting there.
It looked so sad.
