Anyone know, did they use to run these inside their homes back then?

I have some of the rubber wringers also still wrapped in brown paper from the factory.
They are buried under a ton of stuff   :tickedoff:

Nice,  O0

I got junk everywhere.


Same here, been trying to clean the garage and basement out.


Needed a wig wag for a whirlpool belt drive washer the other week. Have not seen a belt drive washer for at least 15 years and then one day I get a call on one.


I knew that I had a wig wag around someplace, but could not find it so I had to order one.


Then I found one in the garage the other day while cleaning it out, lol..


Time to clean house. :) Why save it if you can't find it when you need it anyway?

My main problem is I never lock the shop. The doors stay open 365 days a year. Had some idiot rummage around in there last summer. Musta been a kid. Just flung everything about. Then My grandchildren love to play with my tools and my grown children got half their stuff piled up in there.  LOL

I had unopened cans of JR and Billy beer, they all leaked after a few years.
I think your Maytag oil is worth more!
