Default Redneck chamois wringer mounted!

Ever get tired of trying to wring the last few drops out of your chamois? Sick of the corners getting stretched out? I stumbled upon an old maytag wringer-washing machine this afternoon and welded a handle to it and presto! Chamois wringer. This sucker gets 'em dry. New chamois wringers cost $100-$200

"And the award for most ingenious new product goes to..."

... JohnDeerBoy for the Redneck Chamois Wringer



That'* awesome. I have some extra power seat motors. You want 'em so you don't have to crank? You could wire up a cig plug and use it after washing the car.

Necessity is the mother of invention. Very clever and it does the job at a fraction of the cost.
