This is my first post on this sub, and I have to say, I am Flabbergasted by the negative blowback received. As a long time musician and curio collector I was excited to see that this company was still surviving 100 years after the invention of the washing machine. It encouraged me that a small company, against all odds is still ioperation and thriving. It made me happy. I'm sorry it didn't make everyone here happy. It is a bright moment agaisnt all the tech company firings

Because it's a happy relic of the past that is still being made 100 years after the invention of the electric washing machine. 40% of their boards are used as instruments in jug, Bluegrass and other bands and music makes me happy.. Washboard remind me of my grandmother and that makes me happy. So, for me, it was an uplifting article.
