Hi everyone,

The DVDís are ready to go. But I do want to stress again that the format for the DVD disks is the DVD-R format which will play on most DVD players made 2003 or later, but not all. Please check you DVD players owners manual to make sure it supports the DVD-R format. I have five DVD players in the house and the disks played on four of the five players, so the odds are good, but again please do double check.

I set up a special page for the DVD offer, you can access from the home page or from the link below.

Plenty of Extras

unimatic1140's profile picture
I've been getting a quite few emails asking if me its too late to get a copy of the Wizard DVD, so I though I better post a message. I made plenty of extras just in case. So if there is anyone else who would like one there still are some left.

That's good. I was away for a week and I wouldn't miss the DVD ofcourse. I don't know if it works on my computer (don't have a DVD player yet) but I want to have it anyway. Thanks for this great offer!

Woohoo, can't wait to add it to my virtual collection.

A DVD takes up much less space than a real machine.

How Many Sold?

mrb627's profile picture

I would be curious to know how many DVD's have been sold/reserved?

What is the turnaround time on creating a DVD?

Can we expect a new release every other month or so?

Have you chosen the model for Volume II?

Hi Malcolm,

Well so far I've receved 16 paypal orders for the DVD, but I'm sure some more will come in through the US Mail next week. I will let you know what the final count was after I get all the orders in and shipped out.

It takes about 20 hours of work to create the DVD, everything from setting up to editing to driving deep into the suburbs to have them duplicated to making out packages and getting them to the post office. I've learned my lesson about committing to any specific timed releases but if there is enough interest in these "Virtual Collections" I can continue making the DVD's. We can have a vote as to the next machine. What your top choice be?

The 1957 Lady Kenmore or 1951 GE!

Post# 45422 , Reply# 19   9/19/2004 at 23:13 (7,154 days old) by tolivac (greenville nc)        

I second the idea of the '51 GE and the '57KN-The KN would be like what my grandmother had.Enjoyed watching it while visiting her as a little kid.

The 57 LK would be FAB in all her lighted glory !

I'm glad several of you boys agreee with my earlier suggestion for the 51 GE or 57 Lady as the next installment.

Robert, I mailed you my check for the Wizard video this past Friday so it should be there today or tomorrow.

Lady K all the way

I defintely want to have a good DVD of a vintage Kenmore in action. That will be like childhood memories for me.

I would love a Pulsamatic DVD, but I remember Robert telling us that it pulses too fast to really capture it on video. That machine is the coolest by far...

The Hotpoint with the detergent dispenser would be cool.

Which GE to record? The early one with the amazing cooldown?

GE is first

mrb627's profile picture
My first pick would be the GE. Then the Speed Queen. Then the LK.

The Pulsamatic might work on a TV Set

unimatic1140's profile picture
No I believe I just might be able to capture the pulsamatic on DVD-Video though. It doesn't look right on a computer screen, but I think there is a good chance that it might work on a TV screen from a DVD! I will have to experiment.

What about the Philco? That looks like an awesome machine for the DVD project.
