Cosco

presents the first steel and nylon

BABY CRIBS

Now the makers of the world's best-selling metal juvenile furniture introduce the first really new baby crib in years. It's styled in steel-and-nylon with sides that lower-completely. Mother can now tend baby while sitting on edge of baby's crib. More compact: glides easily through average size doorways, yet takes full size baby mattress. Strong, closely-woven nylon net keeps baby, toys and bottle, inside; pets outside. And baby can't slip head through-arms or legs either. The grandest baby crib ever!

CHECK ALL THESE EXCLUSIVE FEATURES!

For mother, both sides lowerto allow her to sit on crib to tend baby. For baby, non-toxic, cloth-backed, plastic-covered top rail acts as fine teething ring.

Both sides of bed have two safety locks that require an adult to release -so baby's safe and secure (to sleep the hours away) until mother unsnaps the sides.

Bonderized, tubular steel frame is

light-weight but virtually indestructible. Two-coat, baked-on enamel is extremely resistant to chipping and scratching.

Easy-to-keep clean and sanitary. Even the upholstered headboards and footboards are a snap to sponge clean - like the white, nylon netting.

Thumbnail Image of Download 1959 Easy Automatic Washer Service Manual
Here is the service manual introducing the very first Velva-Power Easy Washers. The 1959 Easy Automatic Washer series Golden Regent and Riviera. Models ADK and ABK.

Sections include full specifications, Installation, Operating Instructions, Cycle of Operation Charts, Tools, Dismantling, Reassembly, Replacement of Parts, Adjustment, Troubleshooting Charts and Wiring Diagrams/Schematics.

The 1959 Automatic Washers Models ADK and ABK are equipped with a completely new, revolutionized, sealed transmission. This new "Velva Powered" transmission (equipped with a direct drive motor) has been thoroughly field tested commercially and in homes. It requires no belts, pulleys, solenoids, or other devices, such as "cut off" switches.

The limited out-put torque clutch in the transmission accomplishes two definite purposes. It permits gradual acceleration of the wash tub without overloading the motor and controls the spin speed, preventing the tub from reaching high r.p.m. when subjected to extremely unbalanced loads, eliminating the need for any cut-off device. An internal brake applied automatically at the end of the cycle allows the spin tub to come to a smooth gliding stop.

Automatic shifting from agitation to spin is accomplished by means of a two-speed, heavy duty, reversible, :Y3 H.P., 115 V., 60 cycle motor. An overload protector built into the motor prevents motor "burn-out."

A completely new type of discharge pump directly driven by the motor further eliminates pulleys and belts.
