A bargain! - but what is it?

Recommended Posts

Well, my local charity shop had a bric a brac sale today and I couldn't resist this for just 50p




It weighs almost 2 lb and is solid aluminium, the whole thing is 9 inches long and 9 inches high, and an impression on the handle reads "simplex - super, made Italy". The slotted bucket thingy fits inside too, and with it being Italian and all, I'm thinking citrus press? Anyone any ideas :?

Anyone any ideas how to clean aluminium? I just gave it a good wash with hot soapy water, but it has a bloom to it in places, and everywhere but the handle is a little rough. I took the bolt out that holds it all together and had to use a brillo type pad on it to smooth it down, but didn't fancy doing that all over it :shock:


I will be back in the charity shop next Saturday morning :wink:
