    Default 1920's Winselmann Titan Hand Crank

    Went to an estate sale on Tuesday, was lucky enough to pick up this 1920's Winselmann "Titan" hand crank machine with a domed case for $75. It is a Saxonia type machine made in Altenburg, Germany. The first pics are of the machine which needed almost no cleaning. The first pic of the case shows 1/2 treated w/Howard's Restore A Finish Golden Oak and the other 1/2 untreated. The last pic of the case shows the last step of Howard's Feed and Wax. You can see the damage of the base of the case. Hoping to reattach the veneer in the curved area.

    It's been a treat to see your before and after photos of your restorations. Thanks for sharing!

    It's in beautiful condition! (I think the portables tend to be in better shape because people put them away.) Funny, the name "Titan" for such a diminutive machine.

    You always find the most beautiful machines! Estate sales here rarely have nice ones at all.
