Description: Metal crank mechanism that was part the ice cream maker (990.1.15). It has a wooden handle attached to the metal. The metal mechanism is marked "Alaska Freezer."

A domestic ice cream maker or ice cream freezer is a machine used to make small quantities of ice cream at home. Ice cream makers may stir the mixture by hand-cranking and may chill the ice cream by using a freezing mixture. A manual machine usually comprise an outer bowl and a smaller inner bowl with a hand-cranked mechanism which turns a paddle, sometimes called a dasher, to stir the mixture. The outer bowl is filled with a freezing mixture of salt and ice: the addition of salt to the ice causes freezing-point depression; as the salt melts the ice, its heat of fusion allows it to absorb heat from the ice cream mixture, freezing the ice cream. _http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_cream_maker_
