Waring Blender Mod 1138

ultramatic's profile picture

 

 

14 Speed, Robot BLENDOR. It has a 40 ounce glass canister. It works beautifully, including the timer. Not sure of the year. Mid to late 1960's? Another candidate for a thorough cleaning.

Oscillating, desk or wall mount. Circa 1960. Doesn't work, but it's all there. I couldn't resist for $3.00.

That Telechron is very cool - and in stellar condition too. Invariably, whenever I see a cute vintage clock, the case is cracked or worse...

USALite Christmas Lights. Candelabra Base. No. 715

Early 1950's? Judging from the amount of dust on and inside the box, this set seems to have been in storage for many years.

Waring Blendor:

danemodsandy's profile picture
That Blendor is from the second half of the '60s, later in the decade, and if memory serves, it was the TOL of the home blender models Waring made. There was a huge blender craze around 1967-68, with new models coming out what seemed like daily, and cookbooks galore. One recipe sold more blenders than any other: Food consultant Ann Serranne's blender Hollandaise. The most temperamental of classic sauces could suddenly be prepared by a fifteen-year-old (like me!), with perfect results every time. Asparagus season was never so much fun.

In case anyone doesn't remember:

3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Few grains cayenne pepper
1 stick butter

Place egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and cayenne in blender. Put lid on blender jar, but leave center cap off. Melt butter in small saucepan, and heat to boiling (it should actually bubble, but should not smoke or turn brown). Turn blender to high speed, and with motor running, pour hot butter into the jar in a steady stream. As soon as all the butter has been poured in, the Hollandaise is ready - the heat of the butter cooks the egg yolks. Serve while still warm.

Even though the box was opened, apparently it has never been used. It's brand new. Circa 1953. Can't wait to try the doughnut recipe. They don't make them like this anymore.

What Neat Items!!!

That telechron is so nice,whenever I find a nice plastic piece like that I use paste wax on it to clean it and feed the plastic with its oils.Like old plastic and bakelite radio cabinets.They get so dry.That cooker is so clean,can you Imagine 34.95 was half a weeks salary when it was new! Thats why I guess you find such well kept appliances from those by-gone eras.My granmother had a 54 top of the line Sears frogeye she always kept covered when she wasnt running laundry.She always stayed with it while it was running.Today people really abuse appliances,I was at the restore outlet and I cant get over how many young late model appliances they have and most are so filthy.Everytime I use mine I wipe them down and dry them with a handtowel and let them air out and clean the lint filter right after every use,it only takes a few seconds.

What a great day that must have been.
I've got a couple of similar Warings... and I think but not positive that I have that clock somewhere amongst all "the stuff" but I wouldn't bet my life on it. I do have some other telechrons and neat Westclox's

The fryer is gorgeous.

the fan looks like it was made by westinghouse or possibly superlectric-have fans from both those companies with basicly the same design of plastic blade.

...I paid $3.00 for it. The blender was $10, the Christmas lights were $5.00. The most expensive item was the fryer at $20. Gran total was $41.00.  Yes, I'm going back this Saturday! Laughing

Hey, thanks guys!

ultramatic's profile picture

 

 

If there is one thing I've learned in thrifting, the further you are from a metropolitan area, the better. Better selection, better prices. The downside is of course the long drive. Luckily, I have a close friend the lives in western New Jersey, so we make a day of it. Last Saturday he got a nice set of Corning ware (Cornflower) for $10.00 plus a large coffee maker, mint, in box for $5.00. I bet that Kenmore dryer is still there, waiting for a happy home.

 

And thank you Eugene, he finally made an honest man out of me. :)

 

Beauty is very subjective Tim, I find your clock  handsome.

 

It's funny about the Telechron clock I bought, I thought, "Aha, it's Art Deco, maybe from the late 1930's?" But it was produced right after WWII. Oh well.

What are you going to prepare in your new Broil-Quik? (I loved the creative spelling they used then...could have also used "Kwik")

Maybe whip up a batch of ham croquettes?

I think it's going to be doughnuts. I want to use the recipe book that came with the fryer. Ham croquettes sound scrumptious....you wouldn't happen to have a recipe for them do you? Tongue out

Louie,

There's nothing better than homemade doughnuts! Enjoy! And in case you have any leftover ham from your holiday dinners, you can give this a try:

Ham Croquettes
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper
1 pound leftover ham, diced into small pieces
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
3 cups dried breadcrumbs, divided
4 eggs (plus a little water)
oil for frying

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer cooked onions to a large bowl. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir in ham, Cheddar cheese, and 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs. Beat 3 eggs and stir into ham mixture. Make balls out of mixture (about golf ball size). You can use your hands or a couple of tablespoons. Get your oil to frying tempurature. Spread remaining bread crumbs onto a plate. In a large bowl, beat 1 egg with a couple tablespoons of water. Dip balls into egg mixture, and roll in bread crumbs. Fry until golden brown and then remove and let them drain on some paper towels to soak up any excess oil. Serve warm with either a basic white sauce or cheese sauce.

Just a word of caution on collecting clocks that have glow in the dark hands or rear panels. 
 
Some of them are Radioactive.  I remember seeing a documentary on HBO, in the early 80s, about this, and was really alarmed,  upset by it.  Especially the way Westclox acted to avert responsibility to the workers, and to cleaning up the contaminated plant in Illinois.

@ Tim. You know I wasn't looking for anything that day. Just happened to drop by. I never expected to returning home with a haul. If I find anything this Saturday, I'll be posting it here.

mikeklondon's profile picture
We have many charity shops in the UK but they are not allowed to sell electrical good any longer we also used to have lots of little shops that sold second hand good but they also have all gone due to the H&S police. you can only sell SH electrical goods now in the UK if that have been tested and carry a P.A.T. cert. I think its OK if your a private seller and sell on e-bay but for how long, I don't know sooner or later someone will legislate against it

Mike,

I saw an episode of Cash in the Attic with that cutie, Alistair Appleton, in which they were taking something to Auction. 

The Appraiser, Paul Hayes, stated that they would have to cut off the plug for anything electrical.

 

I think an MP, or two, has taken a bribe somewhere to push through this over reaching legislation.

 

I can't imagine going to a charity shop that didn't have electrical appliances.  I hope someone overturns that there.

Guys I have a question...

ultramatic's profile picture

I've cleaned up the Telechron and found a tiny, hairline crack towards the bottom of the case. Frown But you can hardly notice it. There are also a few scuff marks. Is there a way to buff these out? The case is plastic, not bakelite.  Any advice would be appreciated.

Little scuffs!

Try a little brasso on it,Ihave found on old radios it really shines them then I use a good paste wax on them.Even furniture,I bought a Heywood Wakefield dresser model Sculpura,I got so frustrated with it was covered in nicotine,I polished the whole thing with brasso and then let dry and waxed it,turned out beautiful.Sure surprised me. Good Luck

Toastmaster fan

My parents has a fan just like the one pictured. It was a fairly quiet fan compared to the Wizard fans other family members owned. The base was made of die cast metal and could be wall mounted too. The fan basically died due to bearing failure after about 7 years of use for 6 months of the year.

great finds Louie, I love the fryer, it looks great.

I also second the comment about taking caution with vintage glow in the dark clocks. The glow in the dark parts were painted with radium which is radioactive. It was hand painted by the factory workers many of whom ended up with cancer of the throat or liver from ingesting the radium, as they would lick the tips of the paintbrushes to maintain a super fine tip for the detail work in their painting

The Fan

I wonder if that fan was made by McGraw Edison,they made many under different labels.Like Grants,Wizard,and so-forth.Most dont have oil ports,but it wouldnt hurt to run a little down the shaft behind the blade.

Radium

sarahperdue's profile picture
My husband has his father's Omega watch--probably from the '40s. He had it serviced some time in the '90s, and the watchmaker told him that the glow-in-the-dark material on his watch was radium. I don't know what his process was, but the watchmaker removed and disposed of it then repainted the dail with a modern product.

My grandmother had some magazines from the '20s. They contained all kinds of ads for radium based glow in the dark products. I remember the push button light switches and pullchains...

Radium on the Telechron...

ultramatic's profile picture

 

 

Although I am not 100% certain. It seems that this model indeed had a"Luminous" dial and hands. Nothing glows now and the odd thing is there appears to be a piece of tape on the big hand of the clock, nothing on the other hand. Was the tape painted first then applied? I haven't opened the clock face to clean it. Anyway, to be safe it's being kept on a shelf above my laptop. Thanks for the warnings.

Sadly, the Telechron is going to be disposed of. After researching on the dangers of Radium, I thought it best not to take any risks. Sigh.

Louie, if the hands no longer glow, then you're not dealing with radium. Radium, if I recall, has a half life of something like 1600 years- they'd still be glowing today. If you're still concerned, I'm sure there are plenty of eager recipients that would take that clock off your hands! -Cory

Even when it's no longer luminescent, it is still radioactive. I won't make the mistake twice that's for sure. Cry

I would think that even if the hands did had Radium on them the distance between you and the clock would provide minimum exposure.

Most of the people who were sickened by Radium got the Radium via ingestion somehow or by handling it directly. With the small amount used, 3 feet away would probably be safe.

You could also have it checked with a geiger counter to see if it even radioactive at all.

I would also think that distance would limit the dangers of radioactivity. A fast Google search turned up one page that supported this idea. In a different context, I recall radiation concerns with computer monitors once (obviously a different type of radiation than radium), and "keep your distance" was always one piece of advice given in that context: over distance, the radiation would fade.

Still, I can understand a feeling that "no amount of radioactivity is safe!"

Radiation Today:

danemodsandy's profile picture
While I can understand concerns about residual radiation in radium-dialed vintage clocks, radiation is in most American homes today.

The reason is ionizing smoke detectors, the most common type, which use radioactive Americum-241. Next time you change batteries in your detectors, you will almost certainly see a radura (the circular triple-triangle logo) alerting you to the presence of a radioactive substance. Only photo-sensitive detectors lack Americum-241.

You're some distance from it, it's a small amount, and there's no real reason for concern. The problems with radium-dialed clocks and watches were with direct contact and ingestion.

There are also radiation concerns with orange-red vintage Fiestaware and certain types of collectible ceramics and glass.

The EPA's (the United States Environmental Protection Agency) stance on all these vintage products is don't spend a lot of time around them (don't put a radium-dialed clock next to your bed), and don't use ceramic or glass products for food. Don't disassemble, and dispose of broken stuff properly.

In my opinion, it adds up to no big whoop as long as your collectibles are shelf pieces you don't sit or lie next to for any length of time. Here's the EPA page:

Charity shops in the UK no longer able to sell electrical go

That's not true! Many if not most charity shops and second hand shops sell all kinds of electrical goods. Most of the larger ones sell full size appliances like washers, dryers and fridge freezers. Naturally they all have to be PAT tested, but that certainly doesn't stop them.

I love nothing more than wandering around second hand shops and charity shops in my spare time to hunt out vintage/retro electrical goodies!

This is all I bought...I'm dating it to be from around the mid 1950's. $30 at a Restore Store in Allentown, PA.  Of course the the shade cap is not original. I wonder what kind it would had had originally, a flat disc, a knob or finial? I don't think it's a Moe. Does anyone know anything about this lamp? Thanks!

Shade

ovrphil's profile picture
Louie - no kidding, my jaw dropped when I saw this...that's the shade we had in our bedroom(sister and I) til it was turned into my parents master bedroom and we got our own br's.

It was more like 1957-1960. I wish I had a picture of it, but there's a story about its short-lived life in our room. So, I was practicing with my yo-yo in the room..(you can see it coming)...and doing some "around the world" tricks. You know, where you spin it at the bottom and then swing it around in 360 vertical degrees. Yep, I got that shade...and it was replaced with a blue one. My mom's favorite repeated phrase for me, "Now what did you do?".

Totally forgot about that shade...til you posted a pic of it...cool to see it after all those years...really amazing...where are you going to use it?

Nice finds

I was looking at the temperature guide for the fryer and just wondered who would deep fry hamburger patties and why.

The way most workers in watch factories got radium poisoning was that they pulled the brush to a point by pulling it through their pursed lips before dipping it back into the radium-containing paint. Did you test the clock with a Geiger counter to determine its radioactivity? It might just have had phosphorescent paint on the dial.

Louie,

That shade would also work well in a kitchen/dining area.  It would most likely have had a round flat bottomed cap.  My grandma had, and my parents have 4 light fixtures in their kitchens.  None of them had shades this cool though.  I like it lots!

@ Tim You're right, seeing some pictures of similar lamps, the bottom should be a disk. The lamp wouldn't look too good in the galley kitchen, the dining room has a chandelier, as for the living room, there are no ceiling boxes, switches control table lamps. The hallways are too long and narrow, so the only place would be one of the bedrooms.

 

@Hans Thanks! I just LOVE vintage Christmas stuff, specially lights. And I'm with you, NIB stuff just can't be beat!

The center disk is from another lamp, I feel it's too wide, so I'll be looking for something a bit smaller. I have to swap out 2 of the CFL's. Their color temp is a bit too warm. I just LOVE those stars!

Hanging question

ovrphil's profile picture
Louie - unless you chose to hang it that way, a lamp shade like this is not typically hung so close to the ceiling. It looks like(and correct me if I'm wrong) there's no or very little space there. A 1-1.5" space would help to effuse heat, too. But if you're using an LED no/low heat light - it's not an issue. I really like this lamp shade...really nice find.

I'm using the original fixture that came with the shade.  There's actually about 4" from the lip of the shade to the ceiling. I'm using compact fluorescent bulbs, so heat is very low compared to traditional incandescents.  I considered purchasing LED bulbs, but they are still too cost prohibitive. The CFL's I'm using now are rated at 100 watt equivalent light output. Too bright for a 4 light fixture in a bedroom. Switching to 75 watt soon.

Gotcha. If you're moving to 75W CFL - Not suggesting, but just fyi - there's some very low wattage CFL's that would work here and dimmable (nice)

Lighting makes an environment, but that shade is cosmic cool.

I happened to stop at an estate sale on my home from work this afternoon and snagged a very nice vintage Presto griddle for $3.50.  I love the fact that it's submersible, and it fits perfectly in the dishwasher.  The glass drip tray is in perfect shape, and it is very heavy too.  The model no. is KD09A.  Unlike some models, this one didn't come with a glass cover.  It looks to be from circa 1964.  Sorry Sandy, no West Bend canisters though.

Interesting table lamp...any ideas who designed/made it?

ultramatic's profile picture

 

I bought this yesterday at a flea market. It reminded me of a Gerald Thurston / Lightolier table lamp, I don't think it is, I saw no markings on it other than a voltage label. It's all metal, with the exception of the shade that seems to be made of a thick plastic (fiberglass?). Certainly is old. $2.00

Found this interesting iron at a flea market today.  It works fine.  Weighs a good 4 pounds. Needs a thorough cleaning and polishing. The cord is not original, looks like a '60's GE iron cord. I will definitely replace it with the correct one.  Anyone know the model year? I'd say circa 1937. Oh yeah, payed $3 bucks for it.

The Mixmasters gears seem fine. A little noisy at the lowest speeds but quiets down on the higher speeds.  But the light comes on the moment you plug in the mixer. I was under the impression it would turn on once you started the mixer. Is this normal?

While out thrifting with Yogi (Martin) a few months ago,  I came across this vintage aquarium complete with hood light and iron stand. Not something I was looking for, but wow, just had to have it.  It's a 20 gallon, steel framed tank with a slate bottom. No brand name on it. When I was a kid my cousin had a 10 gallon one, for gravel she used "cats eye" marbles. It was so beautiful. Looking forward to put this one back to use. So far, NO leaks! Yay!

Got this last Saturday at a flea market right here in Brooklyn. Solid brass/ceramic antique chandelier. Amazingly heavy. What caught my eye was that the wiring is outside the arms. They are solid, not hollow. I vaguely suspect that it was originally a non-electric lamp and at some point was converted to electricity. It's definitely European, perhaps Italian or Spanish in origin. The wiring and sockets are far newer than the lamp. I read somewhere that these are always replaced when an European lamp is to be used here. When I give a detailed cleaning, hopefully I'll find a trade mark.

Notice how odd the arms were attached. They are screwed from the bottom. Perhaps it was incorrectly reassembled when the wiring was updated.

The little painted scenes at the top and bottom are very nice. We used to have a catalog at Orchard Supply Hardware for special ordering lamp parts for our customers. The company was called "Crystal Lamp" out of Los Angeles. They had every part you could imagine for both new and very old lamps as well as parts for converting candle, gas and kerosene fixtures to electricity. I thought it was interesting that many of the parts for chandeliers had a specific name.

There is corrosion on the base but I can address that with a special paint. All 3 speeds work and it oscillates well. Of course it wobbles due to the bent blade. Not sure of the manufacture date. I know they were made pre-war and continued to be built until 1949 or so.  So another project to the pile.

Not sure. Maybe contact GE thru email with the serial number. I know with old Singer sewing machines I have been able to go to the Singer web page and find a link to date a machine. However, GE manufactured an endless number of products and unless everything is catalogued in numerical order, it would be a challenge. Worth a try though. Good luck. Let us hear.

The general style of that lamp is a lot like one my parents had on their bedroom stand. Theirs had a parchment shade. Mom said she got it at the same time they bought the Drexel limed oak bedroom furniture, which was in 1952. There were two lamps on the dresser, but they were different than the other, except for the shades. They sold them in the early 90's; wish I still had them.

Also, seems like Lucy & Ricky had similar lamps on the head of their bed.

Unknown manufacturer. No markings anywhere on it.  It doesn't look like Club. $2.50 Anyone know the brand? Also how can I best clean, sanitize it?

This wasn't an actual thrifting find. It belonged to my aunt. I remember seeing it on her nightstand as a kid. My cousin found it in the closet and gave it to me. So it has a sentimental value. Still keeps perfect time. I remember it had illuminated numerals. Unfortunately, that doesn't work anymore.

The earliest Penguin servers had wooden handles then Bakelite handles later.

Hans,

I do put the Presto griddle in the dishwasher, but I use Melaleuca Diamond Brite gel when I wash it.  It is not caustic at all.

Louie, do you want to start a Part II - these are interesting and you've reached the 100th plus reply...you usual stopping point.

That West Bend Penguin Hot and Cold Server is neat - never saw one before. You find some unique items.
