    Collectible or rebuilding it?

                Marvin, you should start a museum of all the unique and old drain cleaning machines. I would like to see pics of the drain cleaner you have that uses blanks.

                    The machine had a bad armiture and the wires were dry rotted. It was a old lamb motor we put a new spartan motor on it, the old style alumium with fins rewired it and put the reversing switch under the motor using a old 100 outlet box cover and a new electric footswitch. The frame was perfect and drum was great too. This was the best 1000 i have ever seen. The customer was happy with it i wanted to take it in trade but they liked it too much marvin
