There are more of the single hopper units but the double hopper ones are extremely rare. Even harder to find when it has both of the original hoppers, with both of the covers, and both of the catch cans. I recently took a newer heavy duty cord and wired it direct to the motor wires on the unit. The motor is running nice and smooth and strong and no bad smells.
I was not sure about how to properly wire it with the switch so it will be your choice to wire in the switch or replace it or just use an in line switch. The most important thing to me was to make sure that the motor is running fine. There are more of the single hopper units but the double hopper ones are rare.
If there are any coins shown next to an item they are there for size comparison only and not part of the sale. I try to take good pictures and do the best that I can to describe my items with my limited knowledge. I simply go out and find it and pass it along to the folks that collect it. I simply try to list items so that the right people can find them and I leave the rest up to them.
Part of the fun of passing on some of the really odd items is that over the years I have had a number of buyers get back in touch with me and let me know that my items were being featured in their books and a few of them have been the only items know to exist. ----- If you see a very nice item in my listing and do not see any words like perfect or mint condition, please understand that it has nothing to do with the quality of the item that is listed. Many items qualify for the use of those terms but, we have found that there are a few buyers who believe that there has never been an item made that will qualify for their definition of perfect. Read my feedback you will simply find a lot of buyers who say that the item is nicer than expected.
