New to me, late 60’s Morrison Reel mower. After a new hesdgasket and a carb rebuild she’s running as good as ever.

It isn’t very often but occasionally I have a job and the only tool in my possession that will work is my grandfather’s Bluwin Auger set from 1939. Today was one of those days.

From 1936, here’s a Hoover model 150 with an attachment to fit HEPA bags! Works even better than the day it was manufactured.

1972 matchbox super king, played with this endlessly as a child, my children have played with it and now they have out grown it I will be packing it away for the next generation to play with.

Recently bought a Zenith Transoceanic D7000Y on eBay. Needs some work, but it will serve me well for the next 40 years or so when operating properly. Built like a Tank, and easy to service. This is true American quality right here.

My 1960s Sunbeam Electric Lawn Mower.


12 Old Things That Still Work (27 pics)

“Luxury” items aren’t necessarily frugal, even if they last; but my grandpa bought these from a pawn shop for $40, and these S.T. Dupont lighters light every time 30 years later. Reliability of a Zippo but butane burning and snazzy too. Can always send in for repairs, and easy to find used.

KitchenAid mixers get a lot of love around here (and rightfully so), but I love my Sunbeam Mixmaster. It takes up a fraction of the counter space and has been going strong since the 1970s.

1971 Nikkor 180 mm f/2.8 is crystal clear with a bit of stick in the focus ring, and a few scuffs to the barrel. $200 on eBay!

My grandpa’s bike from the 1970s, with Shimano 600 groupset from the 80s, Tange fork – still works like a charm.

Just got given this kitchen aid from the late 60’s early 70’s. Works great.

1970s “F-2” Gillette Super Speed black handle. Scored this on eBay a couple years ago and have been using it almost everyday since. I’d imagine it’ll outlive me.
