I moved a trailer on my farm in the early 90’s. We have a well, so the mechanical dishwasher has been changed x 3(broke now, and not replacing. Refrig x 1, freezer x 1, washer/dryer changed x 1, well pump x3, pressure tank x 3, HVAC x 1. Wow, living gets expensive!

I've got an old electric fan (very heavy) . Says property of the U.S. government. Issue 1948. Works like a champ.

I’ve got one of the old Sunbeam automatic toasters that you put the bread in and it goes down automatically. I remember my parents having one when I was a kid 60 odd years ago.

Maytag used to have its commercials with the Maytag Man as " the loneliest guy in town!" because their appliances were so well built and reliable. When was the last time you saw something like that ?
Then then was the neighborhood "fixit man." Recall one from the town where my aunt and uncle lived. Older man, his garage/workshop fronted on the street.
Came home one summer night a few years ago, the PRC made GE A/C in my bedroom was kaput. I ran it about 300 days. On the other hand I paid only $20.00 at a yard sale.
All this modern stuff is pressed and stamped together, so forget about trying to disassemble it.

My mom and dad bought a Frigidaire refrigerator just like the one in the photo below the year they got married 71 years ago in 1948. My dad gave the old refrigerator away just before he died 4 years ago to a friend of his and it was still running then.

And it was still as white as the day they bought it because it had a porcelain finish instead of paint.

Hi,

In my own defense, gramps, I had to go around twice!

When my dad passed on we donated to a Veterans' Organization his refrigerator (about 30 years old) and his washer and dryer (about 35 years old) because they were all still in good shape and operating properly.

I still have the solar powered clothes dryer (no brand name on it) that was here at the house before I was born, still works like a charm!

Hi,

My old, and admittedly getting rickety, Maytag washer got new water feed hoses last night. They hadn't been touched in the 30+ years since I got it used, and it was easily ten years old then. One had developed a pinhole leak at the fitting after the plumbers replaced the leaky valves at the wall recently. If not for that disturbance, the leak probably wouldn't have started. Getting them out in the light, they were a matched pair and said "Maytag" down the sides... I'm guessing that means they were originals. Now I understand the recommendation for replacement's about five years. Some difference!

In addition to our 34 year old clothes dryer, previously mentioned, the clothes washer is 22 years old.

I couldn't find clothesline poles when I moved here, had to make my own. Kinda hard to "go Green" when the products aren't available.
