Super markets will at times part with a few or try the Dairy's. They dont give them away like they used to though.

Just a note. and i got this from a dairy guy. alot of the company owned crates are just that. they are company owned. some are even marked with words of protection on them, that haveing them can be a violation of the law. i willl telll ya tho he told me this cause he saw the three of them i had straped to my four wheeler. . so be sure to ask, or buy them and keep the reciept if they have a major dairy's logo onit. ... paul

I've had my two milk crates since 1972. I purchased them legally and yes I have always kept the reciept in my wallet just in case I get pulled over or questioned about them..... smile

coombia21: Yes, in fact I just went out to check it again, but a 5 gallon bucket does fit inside the crate. In fact in addition to putting my 20# cyl in one so it doesn't tip over I have two of them wire tied to the rear deck of my ATV. It works great to put a 5 gallon bucket in with rods, or a vexi or the minnow bucket. I think they are invaluable. Just my thoughts of course. Bill

The ones I have seen at Menards arent as thick and durable as the good ones at the Dairy places or Grocery stores.

Are there different sizes? I have one from menards but my 20 lb tank does not fit snug in it...there is like 1 - 2" of play....doesn't seem secure. I thought I remember seeing guys whose tanks sat tight in the crate. Maybe I need a heavy duty dairy style crate for this. Thanks.

    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.

    • That the snow's coming. My crab apple, and the ground below it, is literally loaded with Robin's gorging themselves. Started yesterday and hasn't stopped...I counted 15 at once before they flit around and land on another branch.
