Arnies started with a rusty old tool that I found in the bottom of a bucket of stuff in the Rozelle market.
It didn't look like anything special, but I just had to get it.
But, when I cleaned it up and added a bit of oil, the whole shape of it really came out. It's such a gorgeous old tool that I couldn't let go of it.
I didn't realise it at the time, but this was our first piece for the Arnies Museum. I'll never know the real story behind it. But, now it has a new one... Adrian Saunders
Espresso machines have become works of art but years ago, so were simple ones like this air compressor.
