THE DECODAN PROCESS
Remember that when buying a vintage (used) mixer from eBay or any other source, ultimately you get what you pay for and sometimes less. When you buy a Decodan product, you are assured that it has been thoroughly checked and is ready to use...not just look at. The pictures below show both the before and after of just some of the Decodan process. Remember mixers are not the only items I work on. For other items check out my Items for Sale section or the Samples section which contains products finished for other customers.

This is the body of the mixer after it has been stripped and ready for paint along with your choice of an early or late Decodan Sunbeam (R) decal.
This shows the inside of the mixer and how dirty they really are with a mixture of grease and flour dust. You wouldn't believe what I've found in some of these mixers!
