How can you tell?? Those pictures were taken by SIM, methinks. 

I'm used to Mike's chitty photog skills. I can piece it together in my mind.

Here's a crummy old abandoned 1920's/30's standing steamer trunk i pulled outta the community garbage bin...after a bit of love, actually turned out to be a pretty nice tequila/rum cabinet...

The entire thing sits on top of the washer and dryer and is not bolted to the wall by design. I used a combination of felt and rubber pads to isolate it from direct contact with the appliances. The bottom of the surface is also laminated so it moves easily enough to get access to the back for shutoff or vacuuming behind the units when needed. 

 

How has this been working out? I think our front load washer would've rattled the **** out of that when spinning out.  

 

Look what it did to the spider.

Nothing to do with spin speed. All that junk on there corroded the chitty metal they use. What brand?

Bosch. Ended up scrapping it when the only replacement spider I could find was a used one on EBay for $200. And it already had some corrosion on it.

Well thank you, R...you know what they say about idle hands.

 

Gotta stay busy--no matter how ridiculous the result.

I have a mahogany blank on the lathe that I'm going to turn tomorrow but 1st I have to set up my exhaust/vac  unit. Going to route it thru the wall and out  into the woods behind the shop with flex 4'' dryer vent  . My son got me the wood for Christmas. The vac/exh. is a Harbor freight 1 hp unit. It should work fine.

You're better off in most cases buying a new machine. A lot of the time the outer tub bearing suffers damage as well.
