Lookee here, Folks - something you just don't see every day.

Here is a very nice rusty-dusty Farm Master Double Wheel Hog Oiler. It appears to be mostly intact.  There is cracking on the bottom and one of the seams looks to be separating some (see pictures).  It still holds water, but it does have a slow leak.  You can't see the cracks if it is sitting upright on the base.  If you really wanted to actuctually use this - it looks like it could be sealed easily with something like JB Weld.  The wheels all turn freely through the resevoir. 

I could not find a date on this - or in any of my research - but I did find a good explanation about what these were used for.  It seems that back in the early 1900's farmers would put oil on their hogs to prevent bacon from sticking to the frying pan during the cooking process. 

Actually, hogs have delicate skin and the oilers provided relief from bugs and irritiations for the hogs.  There were hundreds of different kinds of oilers made - most collectible being the cast iron ones.  During WWII, many were collected for the war effort.

This particular oiler weighs around 45 lbs prior to packaging for shipping.  Shipping cost will include insurance on this item.    By all means, if you would like to save the cost of shipping, I invite you to pick the item up instead. 

Pictures show condition - minus some dirt and dust - this is just as we found it at a farm sale.  The new owner can display as-is or restore to their desire.

From an estate sale and selling "as-is" so please see pictures and ask questions.

Thank you for looking!!


1.  SHIPPING:    I am glad to combine shipping where able - please be proactive.  I cannot offer refunds to combine shipping once paid - so ask about it and wait for invoice if you have more than one auction or purchase.  Also, please remember - the feedback question asks how quickly the seller shipped your item - NOT how fast did the shipping company deliver.  I use  USPS - most often the Priority Mail option unless it is prohibitively expensive.   I ship daily Monday through Friday.

2.  PAYMENT:  Payment via PayPal expected within 3 days of auction end unless arrangements are made ahead of time.  If you pay by e-check through PayPal, it takes several business days for that payment to clear and be deposited into my account (just like a paper check).  Your item will ship once your e-check payment has cleared into my account. 

3.  RETURNS & REFUNDS: All returns handled on an individual basis. Please contact us prior to returning item so that we can determine best way to proceed. If, by some chance your item arrives broken, I will need you to email me picture of packaging and picture of item before proceeding with return or refund. Thank you.

4.  DESCRIPTIONS:  Most of my items are obtained through estate sales and farm auctions.  I do clean up the items a little for the pictures, but I leave thorough cleaning to the new owner since patina from age and use, once removed, cannot be replaced.  I describe items to the best of my ability and try to be very objective in my wording.  I take lots of pictures as well, and they are intended to be part of the description.  If you have a question that is not addressed in the photos or wording - please ask and I will answer to the best of my ability. 

5.  OUTSIDE THE LOWER 48 STATES: NO international shipping.  From my experience, it is prohibitively expensive to ship outside the USA, I have had to cancel many transactions because of this, so I no longer offer international shipping options.    If you are in Alaska or Hawaii, please verify shipping charges to you prior to bidding so there are no suprises.
