And I've two boys that could use some work lol! This kinda reminds me of the bucket washer from Steinbeck's "Travels with Charlie". He swore by it.

Looks... interesting biggrin.gif I never thought it's possible to make your own washing machine!
I'm definitely gonna give it a try in the summer. I hope it won't destroy my clothes! smile.gif

I always look at something like this and ask myself, how can this be improved? If you mounted the plunger on some sort of crankshaft assembly it would reduce a lot of the effort, but that's just too darn complicated. Other than that I would make two complete sets, one for washing, the other for rinsing. This one really is the soul of simplicity.
