Very cool old kettle I found with my ATpro 2 seasons ago. been meaning to do electrolysis on it but haven't gotten around to it yet. Was easily 2 feet down. I knew it was iron but the size of it caught my interest.

Nice find. A lot of digging to get that out.

VERY cool. Don't think I've ever seen a whole one dug up like that. The people having that cookout probably dropped some other stuff too, I bet Yes Are you going to give it an electrolysis bath?

I've been planning on it just haven't got around to doing it yet. Have everything to do it, I think. Never done it before but have seen a lot of videos on it.

Was the kettle the only thing found two feet deep in the hole?

Yes, that was all that was there. I did find a few flat buttons nearby though. I was hoping there was something inside but nothing.
