    scored big yesterday-was at the salvage yard and the owner had just got 2 wringer washers in and had not the time to check them over so he said if i wanted them as is $50.00 so i jumped at it and with only about 2 hrs. of servicing them they still run with the original motors just needed a good grease job as soon as i get them cleaned up ill take some pics -they will be able to run off my little gen. and now ill have to put in a long cloths for drying-i think i made a good deal -you cant get better cloths clean than on a wringer as the longer you let them wash the cleaner they get

    Wow, nice find.......wish I had one. The ones I grew-up with were electric wringer type. Does it have two rollers or three....??? They can be finger eaters.

    Husband said his father put a gas motor on one of them for his mother years ago.

    Fantastic find and congrats on that one. Traded one to a brother in law last year on the condition that if let go i'd get it back. Yep found out he went straight and sold it. I'll locate another it will take a while. Glad ya made such a great find.
