This is cross-posted from my new sewing blog, Sew Behave. Just found this beast at a Salvation Army store near where I live. It's a mangle, a commercial pressing machine which I've been thinking of and slightly wanting for my sewing biz. This is a model 95 Ironrite, a smaller version than the enormous mangle my grandmother had and used when she was running a boarding house in the 1940s. This is electric and has a light. It also allows the user to press and roll or just press without rolling which is good for me with certain projects I need ironed.
