The Big Easy

No, I don’t mean the 1987 movie starring Dennis Quaid and Ellen Barkin, but rather my 1950’s mangle iron.  It’s big:

Mangle Iron 018

and as the name suggests, it’s

Mangle Iron 020

Lift the cover, and it looks like this:

Mangle Iron 021

Mangle Iron 022

A heating element with dual temperature controls sits behind the large roller.  Turn on the switch, the roller begins to turn and the element comes down, ironing whatever rolls past it.  I have found this iron to be most useful in pressing my handwoven items, especially when doing several items, like the dish towels mentioned in my previous post.

Happy weaving,
