The new Chav Rub juicer

I couldn't resist when I saw this in my neighbors yard for-sale.  I have a thing for dawn of the industrial revolution but still pre-electric mechanics.   First thought the brand was Chay Rub but with a closer look it's Chav Rub made somewhere in Guadalajara.   With the correct name I was able to find the second foto and see I am missing a return spring.   Mine is also a #6 and the 2nd foto is a #4 which means I can do oranges and small grapefruit and theirs just oranges.

I once bought an aluminum lime juicer because it looked stronger .... the small hand squeeze kind.   I was eventually told to get rid of it and buy plastic.   The acid of especially limes reacts with the aluminum and can give a fowl taste to the juice after awhile. My new one is aluminum but the cone and cup are stainless and oranges are a whole lot less acidic than limes.

So this one cost me 150 pesos and list new for about 500 for this large size.  Chrome it and advertise it as a "Bar Juicer" in the US and ask $194 dollars.   Maybe both companies using Mayan names .... Chav Rub and Ra Chand?

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
