Old Stuff You Still Use ?
 
Okay, the radio doesn't work as a radio. The phone still does.

I have a 54 year old skin flute that my wife still likes to play.

The only really old thing that comes to mind is my grandfather's Buck knife.

Unless you count the Sears battery charger that I bought in 1976. :lol3

Bronze flur de lis belt buckle that I got in 1968. It's been worn every time I I've worn jeans since. I was involved in a head/leather shop and the buckle came in an assortment of 200 Bronze buckles. Mine was the only one of it's kind in the assortment.

36 yo pair of Cerwin-Vega's still rocking the house ( after a couple of re-cones) that dad gave me. Crossovers are bit flaky at times but still they sound great.

30 yo Pioneer tuner and amplifier now relegated to garage duty powering an Ipod.

34 yo 14 or 15 Sony Trinitron. Haven't powered it in while but I'm sure still works.

Cheers,

David

I still use a number of my grandfather's tools, somewhat out of utility and somewhat out of sentimentality. Not every old tool is better made than today's stuff :D. When I don't want a battery powered drill, this get's pulled out (not an actual pic, but an internet find. mine has a keyless chuck):

1981 Honda C70 Passport. 1978 Yamaha CR1000 receiver. 1978 Olympus OM1 35mm SLR. 1993 Timbuk2 bike messenger bag, used everyday. 1973 Svea gas backpacking stove. 1920 Persian-Blauch carpet - looks new! I had a 1937 toaster that I used until a few years ago but the cord burned that if I hadn't noticed would have taken down a lot of everything else.
