Churn, Meat Grinder on Washer Lightens Wife’s Work
AWASHING machine manufacturer has found two new ways of lightening the | work of the housewife, especially on the farm. With the attachments shown in the photos at the left, she may now grind her mince meat, sausage or vegetables with power from the washing machine, and at the same time churn up the week’s cream for her butter supply.
It takes but a minute to convert the washing machine into a meat grinder. The wringer is removed and replaced by the grinder unit, which is set over the shaft head of the power leg of the washer. When chopping ordinary foodstuffs, this grinder has a capacity of two pounds per minute. There is a safety feed device which exerts constant pressure on the food to facilitate chopping, and at the same time act as a safeguard for the operator.
In converting the machine into a churn, the gyrator is removed from the tub of the washer, and the churn container and paddle is slipped on in its place. This churn is made of aluminum, which is said to be an ideal material for the purpose. It is easy to keep clean, will not absorb odors, resists rust, and is very durable. The churn has a capacity of five gallons, but will churn small quantities equally well.
The churn does not oscillate. The dasher, which is shown in the photo at the top of the page, consists of double aluminum blades which are fastened to a hub. A snug fitting lid fits over the churn.
