    Anyone have any idea what this contraption is?
    It says Bloomfield Industries Chicago #29 on the handle.
    My guess is an old oil can crusher of some sort, but i don't even know if it's automotive related.

    A neighbor, two houses down, got evicted, and this is one of a few items that i brought home, that the landloard told us to take what you want.

            Looks like an earlier version of the "Veg O Matic" that was popular in the 60's.

                      A vintage bloomfield #29 is actually a nice score.
                      They sell for $45 to $100 retail to collectors.

                        Here's mine. It's a homeowner model and not industrial like the one you have.

                            When I was young (when dinosaurs roamed) Mc Donald’s use to make their fries with a similar machine. Had a machine that washed and semi peeled fresh taters. Back when they sold real food!​

                                    I still love Mc Donalds fries when just made. Go to my local one around 11 am once a month when they are switching to lunch and those babies are fresh.
                                    Tomorrow is my day. Wohooo.
