I saw a vintage/antique hand-powered barrel-shaped dishwasher at a recent 'Threshing' show. It had a handle on the side that you moved back and forth that spun a blade at the bottom of the barrel. Dishes/cups, etc, were placed on a carousel, double rack. It had a drain. Has anyone seen one of these, know how to make one, have one for sale? Please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

In our neck of the woods they are called "husbands" or "children"...

My question: Why would you even bother with something like that to "actually wash / clean" your dishes, when it would be easier and probably faster to wash them in the sink my hand.
