6 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

Tullen snips! Cut basically anything, last for decades. I grew up with a pair in our kitchen so I was stoked to find my own pair.


7 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

I was looking through Top for today and found something familiar.


8 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

Got tired of all the mis-matched and bent hangers. Replaced with some heavy duty DODCO Inc. Hangers.


9 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

My 35 year old HP-41cx calculator gets used every day.

15 years of ownership including three years of commercial use.

8 below. Rolling blackouts have hit. Behold my grandmother's vintage Pyrex percolator. All pieces are intact and in use. We shall not suffer from a lack of coffee!!!!!

My 1988 Ariens GT20. 33 years of mowing lawns and plowing snow.


15 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

Staplers??? Huh. Here’s my tried, trusted, and tantalizing Cadet Model 302. Ain’t she pretty?


16 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

Scripto P369 Pencil- freshly polished - in daily use since Undergrad days in 1982.


17 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

Inherited this 1993 over the range Whirlpool microwave when we bought our house 10 years ago. We’ve updated the kitchen and all the other appliances, but can’t get myself to replace this perfectly good reheating and defrosting machine.

Bought in 2001 when Craftman was still a well-built brand, I changed spark plug once and oil change maybe once every 3-4 years, first pull every time regardless of how long it sit, the tires barely got any tread left at this point.

I received this Nesco Pizza Express from my parents that was given to them as a wedding gift in 1993. Aged stone cooking surface and still works like a charm. Made in Italy, and you can't find them anywhere.


20 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

Thrifted from Bulgaria around 2 decades ago. Rail Road Worker steel toe boots. Haven't moved an inch since the day I got them.


21 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

I have been using my Pentel Graph Gear 1000 daily for 6 years now. Not a single problem. I bought two of them originally and I still have not used the second one. Don’t buy cheap mechanical pencils. This thing is a beast and is only about $15. I am going to likely buy the 0.5mm, and 0.3mm versions.


22 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

1980s Philips AW 7694 Stereo Radio Cassette Recorder (Made in Singapore).


23 Old Things That Still Work (25 pics)

My 1979 John Deere 317 Lawn Tractor. They truly don’t build them like this anymore.

The legendary 90’s Toyota Land Cruiser. 24 years old and only needs routine maintenance.
