If you are needing to restore an old Aemotor windmill or looking for parts for a Heller-Aller water well hand or windmill pump, you will be glad to know both companies are still manufacturing new windmills and pumps.
Both of these American companies started doing business in the late 1800s and have survived despite the electric submersible water well pump.
Aemotor was by far one of the most popular and only completely made windmill. Mile for mile across America you will see Aemotor windmills still in use or ready to be restored. The parts have changed very little, only the manufacturing process has been modernized to make even more durable parts.
Heller-Aller pumps were purchased in 1995 by Hitzer Stove Company of Indiana. Heller-Aller Pumps have also changed very little over the years.
You can purchase Aemotor Windmill parts or complete new windmills and towers as well as Heller-Aller deep and shallow well pumps and parts at Cottage Craft Works .com They are located under the Farm and Garden Tab or just Click Here.

Stainless Steel Sink Drain Board from Cottage Craft Works .com handles the big drying projects!
If you are like most that love to garden, home can, and cook in large stock pots the prep and the fulfillment of a job well done is the fun part. On the other hand the cleanup is not so much fun. A home style kitchen sink just was not designed to handle those large pots and pans, consequently the kitchen counter around the sink, down on the cabinet fronts and out on to the floor general end up soaked before the cleanup process can be completed.
If you have upgraded the kitchen cabinets and counters, you know excess water is not good on this type of large investment.
The Amish live off-grid without modern convinces such as a dishwasher. They also have large extended families and do a lot of large batch cooking and home canning. They have developed an extra large Stainless Steel Drain Board in order to drain off excess water back into the kitchen sink.
The Stainless drain board can be used flat or add a dish rack, even with a dish rack there is still room to dry long spoons and knives on the side. Either way you can easily spray off soap suds and all the excess water drains back into the sink.
The extra large Stainless drain board is a very nice but functional item to have in the kitchen to air dry those large commercial size pots, pans and other kitchen utensils. Heavy duty stainless board is right at home with the new style commercial kitchen look. Use on all types of counter tops and with all types of kitchen sinks. Drain board measures 20-1/2 x 18-1/4 and tilts from 2-1/2 down to the sink. It weighs 4 lbs. USA Amish made from 304 USA Stainless Steel. The board has rolled edges and welded corners. Extra high tilt allows it to still drain even on raised edge kitchen sinks.
The Amish made Extra Large Stainless Drain Board is $49.87 and is available at Cottage Craft Works .com. It is located under the Kitchen food processing tab/Kitchen Cooking Utensils or Click Here.

Buying grains and flours in bulk make an excellent stock-up food supply. Store in tight fitting containers and locate in a cool dry location. For those who would like to obtain the economics of bulk purchasing but do not need bulk amounts, consider joining with others to purchase a variety of bulk items and then split. It only takes 3-5 families to make buying in bulk a great money saving idea. This concept makes an excellent large family project or a network of friends and neighbors to join in a Co-Op program as many did during the early times in American history.
