WANTED: Wood Cookstove/Wringer Washer
[Return to Topics]

I'm looking for an older wood cookstove (enamel or cast iron) in good working condition - preferably with warming oven. Also, looking for old wringer washer in good working condition.
I'm in Lafayette, IN but moving to Northeast in a few months. Have truck and will travel for right cookstove/washer. Cash or possible trade?
(I have several antique oak furniture pieces.)

I just bought a house from the 99 year old original owner. She left behind her original wringer washer. Her family said it still works and she preferred it over a newer one she left in the basement also. I don't know what brand it is as I really haven't examined it that closely yet. It has a cast iron base and a metal tub and appears to be in good condition. Judging from pictures I've seen on the internet, I would guess it is from the 1930's. I'm not 100% sure I want to get rid of it, as I like old, unusual things also. I might consider a trade, however, for an old cast iron large wine press. I am located in Youngstown, Ohio. Let me know if this is of any interest to you. Happy New Year!

I have a 1930s or '40s wringer washer that still is operable. As is (minor body rust at the very bottom).

I've had several old wringer washers last few years, can't get nothing for 'em so I usually give them away for a "yard ornament". I don't have one now but imagine south Arkansas too far to travel anyway,

Thank you for the email. Yes, southern Arkansas is a bit far to travel! Amazing...I'm looking for one and you can't give them away! Just goes to show you how different one area can be from the next. Wish me luck in my search and thanks again.
