Indeed, preferably pony brand, and they're a coveted commodity around here nowadays. Can't find a decent rice shovel anymore. I'm not the best at maintenance, nut I hit mine with a rotating wire brush to knock the rust off and sharpen the edge with a grinder every season.

HUH? I thought you bought a new induction stove and installed it into your house... that thing is portable? Do tell....

**edit...just looked it up on google. I had no idea they made portable induction cooking elements. Awesome!
Yes bring it! That will make it easy to monitor the temps. :thumbsup:

Yes, from 100- sear, increments of 10. Also has a timer, been impressed with how well it maintains temp.

Bill would not approve. He insisted on sharpening with a file, and frowned on anyone who used a grinder. I learned that the hard way. In his defense I can say that I now use a file several times a year, and it delivers a very nice edge. Let me look and see if I can dig up the last place I bought #1 and #2 pony's.

@Cannon

Here's where I got the last ones I bought.
http://www.jacksonprofessional.com/prod ... &LineId=75

I cut some of the blade off to get that shape that I wanted, and had to add the holes. It's the closest thing I could get to the old ones.

Ain't it sad that we've come to the place where you have to engineer your own shovel, though. I picked one up at what used to be the farmers coop last season for a spill crew, and it's only value is as a glorified pry bar.

That one's closer, but I'd have to chop it, too. The ones I have that I guard with my life have been in the back of my truck since the '80's, and that's when I inherited them. I suspect one of em was manufactured in the '60's.

Maybe they're using the same stock picture for all of them, but what the heck is the difference in a #00, #1, and #2 shovel?

Part of me is glad I've never even come across such a conundrum as having to modify and polish a shovel...

incriments of 10 degrees? So you can't dial it in to say 132*F and let it go....

I was introduced to the irrigation shovel in 1984 when we dug the foundation for dad's house. On the first day of digging, my gramps pulls up and looks at the situation then says, "Boys, get in the truck. I'm taking you to the feed store and buying you good shovels."
And he did. Along with a file. He showed us how to take care of those shovels.

I'm currently using my grandfather's #1 pony that was his last shovel. I've given some thought to retiring it, mainly when I watch the heron work with the 00 pony I fixed up for him. That smaller spoon sure does make lighter work.

It's the size of the shovel. The #2 being the biggest of the three. You can overload your arse pretty quick in wet mud with a #2.

That shovel or a similar design is readily available. The only problem I have with it is that it's stamped steel. The Jackson shovels I posted are forged the same way that the true temper shovels were. Aside from the holes, the ones I posted are exactly the same as the one Cannon is using.

I'll add that the reason I don't like the stamped version is that it leaves the end of the handle exposed to water and mud more, thus causing it to rot out quicker. It also has a void in the back of the head that lets mud suck to it more. You can see on one of their other shovels how the back is sealed up on the forged model.
