It is a cloth ringer for the house keeper. She has been hanging out the wash dripping wet. It takes two days to dry that way. I am hopping for a drying time of one day if she rings them out first.
The first photo shows the spring that load the upper roller.
The second photo shows the hole thing on the work table.
The third shows Friday welding the lockable casters on the stand.
The rollers were cut from a stainless 2 in. prop shaft. Springs are valve springs off a large truck eng.
This is the first project sense my dance with the devil last April when the grim reaper kept trying to cut in. Glad Mr. 666 kept pushing him away. This project cost me missing skin on my left thumb and a large water blister on my right thumb. Friday got a blood blister on his right thumb from a pair of vice grips. Any way it is done except for the painting, (white). The painting should take place on Monday and the maiden squeeze should take place on Wednesday. ;) A couple of test squeezes revealed some problems that were quickly fixed with a BMFH and a large center punch. :D
