Hidden in a dusty corner of the lodge was an old mangle left by the former owners some years ago.
This forgotten unloved piece of vintage invention was covered in cobwebs, dust and full of woodworm.
So armed with a scrubbing brush and some soapy water i brought the mangle back to life.
Sadly the pine rollers and drip trays had developed some woodworm.
To help stop this i rubbed some beeswax into the wood hoping this would prevent any more spreading.
I was pleased with the results of the finished project. It still has to live in the corner, but at least it has a new lease of life for a few more years yet.
I used some vintage kitchen props when taking these photos.
Other pieces of junk hanging around the cart lodge
Also lots of cobwebs
Some old heavy weights.
I found this years ago in the garden and rescued it from the skip.
More old weights. Cobwebs and all.
