We’ve spent very little time talking so far about one of the most important parts of the 5 gallon bucket – its handle.
I know from my experience that the handle is of critical importance, because I’ve broken them before. You don’t realise how much you rely on that handle until it’s suddenly unusable.
Remember that broken plastic bucket handle from yesterday? We already found a great new use for it.
Things break around the farm. They break a lot. If we had to go hire a repair guy or buy new parts every time something broke, repair costs would eat up all the egg money!
If you’ve ever made a nice tall bucket stack like i have on the free 5 gallon buckets article, you’ve probably had the misfortune of sticking buckets together so tightly that you couldn’t pry them apart.
Wow. What’s with that terrible artwork?
Well, I don’t have any photos for this article, so I’ve drawn some for you instead.
