Old Stuff You Still Use ?

Okay, the radio doesn't work as a radio. The phone still does.

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.

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.

I've got a 45 year old dishwasher, who gets sick of that joke every time that I tell it.

I still shoot an old Belgian Browning A-5 that my Dad gave me from 1974.

Hell, if we are talking that age I still use the HP41CX that I bought in college every day. That thing just turned 30 years old this year. And it just received its millionth "WTF is that" from a young engineer yesterday.

These uppers on these are also 30 years old and still in use:



And the top one is nearly 35 years old and still in use:

I have a "Jeepers Creeper" creeper that my dad bought sometime in the 60's that I still use. In fact, I used it yesterday. It needs new casters. I also have a Colt Single Action Army in .357 with a 6" barrell that he purchased new in 1968 for $68 plus tax. Got the handwritten receipt for it too.

I've posted this pic before in the 'Mog thread but it applies here too. 45 years old and I used it to plow today. The previous owner did a frame off restoration about 10 years ago and then it sat in his shop. When I went to look at it about 5 years ago it was covered in dust. I liked it and asked to go for a test ride. He didn't want to take it out in the light rain unless I was very serious about buying it. I said if it goes through the gears you have a deal and he then reluctantly took me for a drive around the parking lot. The poor thing needed to be used and it's never given me a single problem since the day I took it home. I did plate it the first summer I owned it. It was fun in a Ural kind of way.

If what I've read on the web is accurate, this is from 1948:
