WTB: Rollers for wringer washer

6 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

Hoping someone here can help me locate some rollers that go on a wringer?

It's a bicycle model wringer, and it looks like this:

The ones that are currently on my set-up were unfortunately left clamped together, and one side of the rollers is flat :shakinghead: Does not make for a nice smooth roll.

 

Thanks in advance for any help you might offer.

 

Blessings and peace,

Simply Blessed

Lehman’s has them but they are pricey.

Did you do a Google search for any?

You are right about them having a 'flat' spot- we will find them at sales or auctions but most time the rollers are shot, all dried out or flat spotted.

Good Luck as this will be a great backup for you. Unless you are like us and use it every wash day? We have the same set up with the wringer in the middle of the 2 fold down tub stands but have a Maytag wringer washer as our everyday washer. Love doing things the old way so comforting (at times)

There is also a place, I think the name is Cumberland General Store. Don't know that the prices would be any better than Lehman's but worth a look.

 

Have you checked out thrift stores for old wringers like yours?

Yes, I did do a search on Google, but was not able to find just the rollers.

I was not able to find them on Lehmans either.... Did I miss them somehow? I saw the whole units they sell, but did not see just the rollers...

 

This will serve as a backup for the time being. My current Maytag machine, which is only 3 years old, is slowly on it's way out.... It does not spin the clothes as it should (apparently they've has this problem with many of these models...but it's past the warranty period...grrrrr!).

 

Sometimes it takes 3 different spin cycles to get all the water out. If I had the rollers for the wringer, I would use it in a minute!

 

I know what you mean when you say, "Love doing things the old way so comforting (at times)"..... I agree. While many of my friends just dont get it, I find that hanging laundry to dry, whether outside or inside on my racks, to be very therapeutic. Something about it just brings me peace.

 

If you do happen to know where in Lehman's the rollers could be found, I'd be very grateful if you could provide a link. Otherwise, I was going to ask my DH to help me out....lol....

 

I was thinking we could dismantle 2 similiar size rolling pins, stretch a rubber tube from a bike tire over them to keep them waterproof ??? I dunno..... But I will think of something!

 

Thanks again.

 

Blessings,

SB

What about e-mailing Lehman's to see if they can help you? I am sure they carry some stuff that doesn't make it into the catalog or the website.
