I came across an ad for a United washer for sale in a local advertiser. I have a United grinder and, as a collector of United engines, I've always wanted other products by United.

Jim and I collect washers and other things that go with them. I've always wanted a United washer, so I knew I had to go look at it. I called the man who advertised and set up a time to see it. I called Jim to see if he wanted to go with me to look at the washer.

The next day we went to see it. The man used to have an appliance store in Carson City and used the washer as a display in his store. He got it from a lady who had it in her basement, so it had never been outside. It is complete except it was all painted silver and I had to clean it to find what color the metal was. All the wood has the original lettering. It was just cleaned up and re-varnished. It came out real good. So, now I have a United washer. The engine is a Type A, 1? HP. It has been gone over as well.

Jim and I have several other washers, some powered by engines, some by hand, and Jim also has a dog-powered treadmill to run one.

As other people worry about the problem with the Y2K bug, I guess we can keep our clothes clean. If we run out of gas, we can do it by hand or put the dog to work.
