The crank moves easily up and down the track. The wood does have some cracks and chips but remains intact. (picture 7,8) Missing is a side brace (picture 6, 10) Remains sturdy without the extra brace.This tool made it easier to push the buttermilk from butter. Butter is placed in the unit and the paddle wheel presses out the buttermilk that then drains away through a small in the bottom corner (picture 5) aided by the built in tilt of the unit.
(picture 6) Butter could be moved around to be pressed out several times, much easier than with a butter paddle. Large heavy tool, Pick-Up only. Not far from Rehoboth Beach, De. My listings are mostly all used, vintage or antique condition. I price according to the Whole lot.
