RE:Massey Harris Stoves.

Gary,

If you plan a "MCA Winter Massey Meeting" here in England for the future I will ensure there is plenty of "Massey Heat" for all the MCA members who cross the pond to enjoy.

I know John is waitng for his scones and coffee keeping warm on the top of the stove the next time he is over, but of course the jam and cream will have to be kept cool.

I will certainly make sure we don't burn down the museum before you get your Winter Meet planned here in Lincolnshire.

Malcolm.

RE:Massey Harris Stoves.

Just to revive this thread a bit here is a page from an MH catalogue shoing the different types of stoves.  Later the oven types became more streamlined but the vertical heater type remained the same.

So now you know what you are looking for - and so am I!!!  This is definitely a summer project in readiness for next year's winter.

RE:Massey Harris Stoves.

John,

Thank you for posting the Canadian Farmers Handy Catalogue full page advert for the stoves on here.
Only this weekend whilst sat enjoying the warmth and glow of flame from my Massey stove it got me thinking of my next ambition now this one has beeen fulfilled.
My conclusion was there needs to be a M-H Superior cooking range in either the Eastern or Western UK Massey Collections, either way when we meet up we can experience a "Massey roasted" joint of beef with the usual roast potatoes, yorkshire pudding, horseradish sauce, vegetables, gravy and all the trimmings, in a typical traditional Sunday lunch style which we enjoy so much over here.

What do you think? is it one or two M-H ranges we need to find to achieve this mission?

Maybe this should of been in the Massey Mens Food thread!!!

Malcolm.

RE:Massey Harris Stoves.

Malcolm - couldn't agree with you more about the need to provide for sustainable supplies of quality Massey food.

Maybe we should also think of getting MH refrigerators too so that we can hold Joe's cream and Dennis's ice cream in good wholesome condition.  So this is another item to add to the "wants list".  Then of course an MH washing machine so we can keep our waiting on clothes in tip top immaculate condition.  Of course if the takings are good in our MH restaurant we will also need an MH Safe  to secure the takings.  I have one or two MF Teaspoons here for the cafe area and also an MF Egg Yolk Separator for in the kitchen to help making the ice cream if it is to be true farmhuose type.  We already have MH Cream Separators for Joe's cream supply.  Then I have an MF Sugar Tongues  for those who need sugar lumps in their coffee from your stove.  All set to go????? ................................

For those who are in to kitchen design I am posting a later MH catalogue page showing the later style of cooker type stoves.  Personally I don't think they have the elegance of the older styles that I posted yesterday.  I have found that MH kept parts supplies going for the stoves well into the '40s for both coal and wood burning types of stove so parts should still be easy to come by.

The stoves are much more appealing if you add some color, a pretty lady, and some foreign words to it that you can't understand.

RE:Massey Harris Stoves.

Joe,

We are hoping that the Minnesota members of MCA will get together and cook a full roast beef lunch in Steve's  Massey Superior range when we are next over in that area.
I just thought it would be a good back up plan if we do not find a range to achieve this ambition here in UK, we could just sit back and watch all the ladies do the work, as you say it would be more appealing. Hope you will put this forward when you next meet up with S&S and we look forward to the event, it would be the event of the year in A*****er.

Then what about using a Massey washing machine?? dare we show photographs on here of us men doing the house chores?? we may never get any more outside work done again.

Malcolm.

RE:Massey Harris Stoves.

Joe,

The language is French and one of the easiest to learn so away you go on night classes!  No doubt it is Canadian French.

But the French connection is very relevant.  The real France is only 22 miles across the English Channel from us and of course they had M-H factories making tractors and implements.  A word of caution tho' - French food can be quite interesting but the French tend to smother everything in sauces so warn Malcolm in advance - I don't think this will be to his taste.

However the "madamemoiselle" in the photo might be.  She would look good by the MH stove, an MH washing machine, MH refrigerator or even turning the MH cream separator handle for YOU!

So we leave it in your capable hands to organise the setting up of this Massey restaurant with French lady waitresses at Steve's for the next time we are all over there.

John.
