    Charlee, Welcome back we missed seeing you in the shop. I looked at your new machine and cabinet and you really did a nice job. Machine and cabinet looks great!

    He was using it to work on the ground and he had been using it to work on cars. There were oil stains and mildew and paint stains all in it. The cleaner did an awesome job. He sold it to me for the cost of the cleaning.
    OMG! I remember this now, when you posted this info.
    Please, please post a picture! Do you have before and after?
    Only afters, my DGD takes better pics than I do. I'll get her to do enough shots of it.

    LoL, I have been pondering that since I got her! I have no idea, gonna wait and see how it works.
    If it works kinda goofy like it looks(kinda big and clunky looking), I am thinking Dory. Like from Finding Nemo. :lol:

    I have one last pic, and I need help here bigtime!

    What is this for???
