1930’s Washing Machine

This washing machine was donated to us and was not operational but in good condition. We checked the motor and got it working and then the rag joint that works the agitator disintegrated so we had to make a new one.

We had some leather lying around and we deconstructed the joint and made new pieces using leather. reassembled the joint and replaced it. You can see in the video the machine works like it should a quick easy fix.

The pictures show you the condition and as we restored the joint the tools were simply a razor to cut the leather a punch for the holes and we were in business. This now washes our dirty rags.
