I see them in Lehmans, but I dont know if theyll fit mine as there for a (somewhat) Dazey lookalike churn. I saw 2 dazey churns sell at the sale yesterday, one bigger than I had ever seen, and one the regular size. The big one sent for $150, and the regular one went for $125. Thats WAY more than I want to spend just to get the jar.
You might be able to find one at a local antique store. I seem to recall a rather large antique store at Blackwell, Ok. I'm sure there are some maybe closer to you. Just the jar should be cheaper, but a genuine Dazey does tend to be pricey.
* I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one. .*-
Hey Bill, what size is yours? There's a #8 jar and a #40 jar on sale on eBay right now. I know you probably don't have an eBay account, but if you're interested I could try and get one for you. Just let me know.
The ID in mine is 4 5/8ths. The depth of the jar would/should be around 9, maybe 10in. Let me know what it is going for callie, and ill let you know if interested. Thanks for the thought. Ill check Walmart Mon night. I dont believe I ever saw anything in ours that would work, bvut ill check. You might check yours and see if the measurments I gave match what you saw at your WM. Thanks
The ones I saw are on eBay, not in the store. The first one is way too small, but it sounds like the second one might fit. It says it's 9-1/2" tall, but doesn't give any other measurements. I sent them an e-mail, asking for the top measurement to be sure. It's listed for $19.99 right now, but that may go up since the auction doesn't end until the 13th. The shipping is $10.58.
As soon as I find out what the top measurement is, I'll let you know, and if it's right you can decide if you want me to try and get it.
P.S. I think we probably shop at the same Walmart, in Sapulpa right? I do go to Sand Springs every once in a while, but mostly Sapulpa.

I have one that was my grandpa's but don't want to sell it.
I wouldn't want to sell the one here, either.
I have a lot of childhood memories surrounding it. My mother would strain the milk every day, skim the cream, and put that in the Dazey churn. She made butter every single day with that thing for many years. She had a wooden butter mold, too.
The milk cow along with the +100 hens gave her her butter and egg money.
I would like to bump this thread up again.....
Here seems to be the situation: The original and authentic #40 Dazey churns, had mouth openings of 5" for the jar, the top of the churn would actually measure closer to 5 1/4". Pickle jars are 4 3/4". And the India ripoff's seem to be mostly 1 quart size. (BTW Dazey never made 1 Qt. size for sale).
If you have a Dazey DO NOT break the jar as there doesn't seem to be any where to get a replacement....Even a reproduction. At least I haven't found one. This is why you can buy the mechanics of the churn for $10-$12 on eBay, but the jars are priced OMG.
