    If you have a creek near by throw the tub in it - makes a good lizzard tank.

    If you have fowl and are tired of hand-plucking.....might check into turning that tub into the basis for a WHIZ-BANG CHICKEN PLUCKER ! ! !

    My aunt had an old washing machine rigged up to make apple cider with. There was a garbage disposal mounted over the tub that she would feed the apples into, and then the washer took removed the pulp and seeds, etcetera. She died when I was a kid, so I just have vague, seven year old memories of it.

    You could turn the whole washer into a meat smoker. Remove the motor and stuff from the bottom, drill a few holes in the lid.

    You can take the inside barrel out and it is an instant "fireplace" for outside at night.
