Spotted on Saturday 4-1-23 at Goodwill in Plano TX, 75 and 15th street.

I had found a similar machine on the curb a couple years back and it was confirmed from the mid 80's, so this is why I assume this one is from the same time frame.

Unit is decent shape for its age and has original cord.
No hose or attachments and it looked intact.
Motor sounded normal. Needs the usual spa treatment.
I do not recall the price and it is washed out in the pictures, but it was reasonable, like around 10 bucks or so.

Hope a local collector gets it...

They also had about 8 different DVD/VHS combo units, the most I have ever seen at one place at a time. Priced $2 to $15. None had DVD recorders though (I do grab those).

Could be worth it for the larger water basin.

Thanks rugsucker - I knew it looked different than the one I had found before, and that must be it - the larger basin.

I just went over there to the Plano goodwill right now. Hoping to get the rainbow. Someone already got it before I did.
