The Ladle, It might appear to be a ladle you would find in the 50% off bucket in front of an Army/Navy store in Cape Cod (it was) but is much more than that, it is the glue that holds together a group of Boston college students who have now graduated and grown into adulthood. This is the vessel they drink from on special occasions, weddings, birthday's, Boston teams championships...well not that one yet ok I'm a NYer and my daughter is now a legal Bostonian through a marriage that happened last week. The ladle was present at said wedding and although I am not the keeper of the ladle I am the custodian and the repairs are my responsibility. I had received it once before when the spot weld had broken separating the bowl from handle which I was told made the "ladle dance" very lame. Because it is stainless steel I chose to rivet it which did last a few years unlike any Red Sox winning streak. The rivets had to go... I chose Stainless Steel button bolt and lock nut to preserve the correct tipping action with no "wobble"
