"quite pricey" is an understatementI go by their store once a month, they have everything, but it is quite pricy. It would be a great place for us local/regional preppers to meet and have coffee especially durring the flea market or auction day across the street. Lots of Amish then.
I dunno...They are high but have quality stuff, this ain't wally world for sure. Most things they have i think would last a lone time, a lot are unique.
I used wringer washers for years out of necessity and a way of life... (so for the life of me, I can't figure out why you would hand crank it!) But the wringer tray is a pain once it doesn't stay tipped the right way so I know totally what you are talking about!I dunno...
Seven years ago we ordered their top-of-the-line hand-cranked clothes wringer. Within months the plastic turn-handles for the clamps underneath both snapped off the bolts. And we're careful with our things, so it wasn't misuse or roughness. My husband replaced them with wingnuts, which are hard on the hands to turn.
The turn knob on top to adjust how tightly together the two rollers are (for wringing thicker or thinner clothes items) became so stiff I could hardly turn it, and now I can't. My husband has to, and he worked on it, oiled it.
The wringer rollers themselves turned brown and have tiny cracks spiderwebbed all over. That happened after about 2 years.
The drip tray under the rollers can be tilted to either side...but has NO way to lock it in place, so as you're wringing a clothes item, it may catch on the bottom of the drip tray and flip it up, dumping soapy water into your rinse water, or the other way around, dumping rinse water with vinegar or softener into the wash water. .
Nope ... and if you order something from their website you automatically get their catalogs with your order.Do they even charge for the catalogs?
Because we don't have a wringer-washer, and we don't have electricity.I used wringer washers for years out of necessity and a way of life... (so for the life of me, I can't figure out why you would hand crank it!)
