    Dreaming of a 46" model .... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I'll have to keep my eyes open for one. But, I'll have to make room for it...

    I was thinking of getting a mangle the other day although I don't mind ironing, just hard to iron larger yardage on a ironing board even though it has been enlarged with a sheet of wood. Seen a mangle at the St. Vincent dePaul store.
    Oh yea, also a Rockateer, had to walk away. Not easy, but small house.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    OK, so is a Ironrite and a mangle the same thing? My mom had a mangle and from looking at the pictures, the mangle was bigger.

    My mom worked for a cleaners in the 50's in Chatham, Ontario.
    I would go to piano lessons then walk to cleaners. She taught me how
    the ladies used it. They use to press 200 white shirts a day with one but I never see one now. Never disliked ironing anyway.

    I learned to iron on one of the old Mangle iron similar to this one only they were a lot bigger. I started out ironing pillowcases and worked my way up to sheets. In those days everything had to be ironed. I remember it took up half of her washroom. When it was in use it would heat up the entire house. I wish I had room for one now. What a dream it would be for ironing fabric.

    Never heard of this but it would make ironing fabric easier.

    I love the part that says she does the ironing to relax now. LOL not this girl....Ironing isn't one of my favorite things no matter which way but is just one of those things that you need to do quilting.but i can think of better ways to relax
