    Nestor Johnson Mfg Co. Chicago. I have learned it is from 1951. I believe the dial is porcelain. Stamped with the manufacturer's logo. Patent pending. What's it worth? Thanks for lookin!

      Viking, Your card shuffler was invented by Rudolph Notz patent #2,706,117. He filed for the patent on Aug 3, 1950, but wasn't issued until April 12, 1955. The patent was assigned to Nester Johnson Mfg Co of Chicago,IL. The shuffler could take from one deck of card up to three.

      How many decks does a Johnson card shuffler shuffle? I am looking for a good used mechanical card suffler for some elderly ladies who are relearning canasta. They have purchased a couple of battery powered shufflers and have found them to be unsatisfactory. At one time I had a crank shuffler. I am hunting something for them. They want something that will shuffle two decks. I am just trying to find one for them. Please give me some idea of the cost and if you think women in their late 70's or 80's could operate a mechanical. Is there such a thing as a plug-in shuffler? I have been all over the net and need some help. I hope that you do not mind my asking you. Mildred

      I bought the johnson card shuffler but cannot get it to shuffle properly. the rubber rollers seem to have shrunk with age. Do anyone have suggestions for fixing the problem?
    11. VikingFan82 VikingFan82, 10 years ago
      No idea, I don't even use it, just for display.

      My aunt who is in her 70's and has one of the Nestor Johnson card shufflers from the 1950's, said use a fine nail file and file the rubber rollers, then the card shuffler will shuffle the cards.

      Hey, Nancy! Thanks so much! I was looking for how to repair my mom's Johnson Card Shuffler that seems to have the same problem as Toni's - the rubber rollers weren't moving the cards anymore. After using a nail file lightly on the rollers, it works fine. Now if only it would not flip over a couple of cards each pass that would be swell.
