Hi everybody, I just picked this one up today. Man, I've been finding wringers left and right lately.

Is there anyone that knows about "One Minute"? There seems to be something going on with the agitator control. The lever isn't engaging the agitator. I'm hoping it's a relatively easy fix.

I'm fairly sure he has one (or a few) in his museum in Eaton, Colo. The company was located in Newton, Iowa, which I'm sure you already know.

Seat belts  for washers! I have a location in Kellog, Iowa for the company.  They offered an automatic (that was probably a Beam-made machine) starting in 1953 and clothes dryers starting that same year. Their automatics reached their apotheosis in 1959 with a suds-saver model. I believe that there might have been one of those gas combos that did not spin marketed under the One Minute name. By 1961, production seems to have gone back to wringer washers exclusively.
