Joe Offer BS: Elderly electrical appliances (44) RE: BS: Elderly electrical appliances 10 May 19

Old appliances used to be phenomenal, because they were put together with screws, instead of glue and rivets - and they could be repaired with some ease.
We had a streamline-style Toastmaster 1B9 toaster when I was a kid in the 1950s, and I loved that toaster. The power cord had a woven cloth cover with an interesting design on it, and it shines like a toaster ought to shine.
Maybe about the year 2000, found a toaster in a thrift shop that was in pristine condition, and it looked exactly like that old Toastmaster my family had in the 1950s - even thew power cord was identical. It made perfect toast, but it finally stopped working. I keep meaning to tear it apart and try to fix it, but it's still there in the garage, untouched. We have a pop-up toaster oven now, and it's more versatile than the Toastmaster.
So, my old Toastmaster sits untouched on the shelf.
Such a shame. Rest in peace, old Toastmaster.
