Request: Vintage appliances and electricals - dead or alive! (Blacon CH1) - I collect and repair/restore old household equipment in an effort to preserve some overlooked parts of history. To this end, I am looking for washers, dryers, fridges, freezers, cookers, vacuum cleaners - anything before 1990ish is of interest. I'm an electrician so even that broken machine that's been sat in the garden or the fridge you have been using to store paint tins in the garage can go to good use! I travel about a bit for work so I can happily collect items with a bit of notice. Feel free to drop a message if you have something you think might be of interest. Thanks!
