johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

anyone know a machinist?

so this weekend i was making fresh oj wit' my beloved chrome juice king, and i done stripped out the gear inside.
seems the gear in question for some reason was made out of pot metal instead of steel. cossacks.
anyone out there know anyone, or happen to have a lathe etc to make me a new gyro gearloose?

Time to upgrade to a Juice-O-Mat. Look for the ones with the flip up head. There are various versions that look sort of the same, but they perfected it with the flip up head... Ebay-by

You're probably going to spend more to have a gear cut than a new juicer costs. M&D Machine on Hammonds Ferry does good work.

Here is the one of which I speak on Ebay. Note the tilt top. Note the teeth. This is what you want. Easy to put in and take out the fruit and a short lever action that squishes the living hell out of the fruit in one short throw. You can juice a bag of limes in no time with this. Also comes apart easy to clean. The bottom container even has a pour spout built in.

I don't know about a machinist, but I know where you can find a good pianist.

why have roses on your piano when you can have tulips on your organ?
