It wasn't easy for Brad to live up to the family's ice cream consumption heritage but he tried his best. In three hours, the patriarch of the Kindall clan was going to be arriving and he knew the first thing his dad would ask for was a bowl of ice cream. So there he was on the back porch, crouched over the old wooden ice cream freezer that his dad had pass down to him a few years earlier. It was a hot and humid Minnesota fourth of July and his arm was getting tired from cranking away. He paused only long enough to add some more ice and rock salt and then returned to the cranking.

It was turning harder now, it wouldn't be long until he was done with this batch. Unfortunately, Brad had two more batches to go before he could be done. Father always expected to have at least five different flavors of ice cream to choose from–or rather to include in his dish. Brad thought to himself, maybe, just maybe, he would only make four flavors this time but he couldn't bear the thought of disappointing the old man. Then it came to him, He now had a son who was quite capable of turning the crank on the ice cream maker...why didn't he just make him turn it? Yes, it was about time the boy learned the family secret.

The defeated look on his face was transformed and an evil glint appeared in his eyes as he called out to his son, "SAM!"


Here's a classic White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer ready to make 1.5 gallons of your favorite frozen dessert in vintage style. This large freezer was made in U.S.A. and features a wood bucket, metal freezer bucket with wood paddles on the dasher. The wood bucket is 14" tall and 11.75" in diameter. With the crank attached it is 16" tall. This is a well built, heavy-duty piece weighing in at approx. 15 lbs. The crank has the White Mountain logo embossed on the top. We think the model # (6-64WM1) indicates that it was made in Winchendon, Massachusetts in 1964. White Mountain freezers are known for their rugged, reliable construction which were built to last. This one not only works but also looks great as a display piece.

This ice cream freezer appears to be in good working order with all the original parts. The crank turns smoothly and the wood bucket is tight. The exterior metal parts do have some rust from years of use and exposure to salt. The bucket rings have rust as well as the metal hardware where the crank attaches to the bucket. There's also some spots of rust on the cast metal crank and there's some rust on the exterior bottom of the metal freezing pail. The wood bucket's original varnish is worn off in places and there are water/salt stains and the original paper label is gone. The interior on the other hand is remarkably clean. The dasher wooden paddles clean and free of cracks or splits.
