Nothin' A Little Scrubbing Can't Fix: New/Used Vintage Juicer

Holy Scrap - Fri, 2014/08/01 - 11:52am
While staying with Mikey's parents in WA this summer I learned just what there is to love about these old motorized push citrus juicers. You simply hold the fruit down over the cone an it activates the motor which spins and makes a near perfect, fast, and easy cup of juice. I found this sweetie at a yard sale today and picked it up for $1.50. I was covered in dust and dirt, but nothing soap and water and yes even alcohol couldn't fix.
