My 1967 Bulova Accutron tuning fork watch. I still occasionally hold it to my ear just to hear it hum.

My friggin Craftsman lawnmower. No idea how old it is, got it free from the previous owner of the house... looked like it never had its oil changed till I got it, and it was low. I never drain the fuel out of it, run exclusively on e10 gas. Ran 5w20 in it for a year, came out looking like glitter. Still starts on the first half attempt at a pull every time. And the past 2 years in a row I’ve hit a tree root and bent half the blade down at a nice 90° angle.

For curiosity's sake, it would be interested to know how much electricity that thing uses...

We have a `48 Kelvinator in the barn/workshop that came with house 51 years ago. Keeps the beer cold and uses very little electricity. We unplug it 1st of Nov. and will stock it with Sam Adams next week. The gold Omega Seamaster I bought in `66 when I got discharged from the Army runs fine and will go to my son.

My Dad had a Sears Coldspot deep freeze that he bought sometime around the time I was born (63) and sometime in the 80’s the thermostat went on the fritz. One of my uncles wired around it so it just ran continuously. If you put a carton of ice cream in it you had to take it out a couple of hours before you wanted it so it could soften enough it wouldn’t bend your spoon.

He made me empty and unplug it when he went into the Veterans Home in 2008. It was still running strong. One day I plan to go get it and put it in my basement and see if it will fire up again.

Craftsman table saw. 1976 when I bought it. Takes an 8” blade, which is getting hard to find. Just changed out the original blade with a 7 1/4” blade. I thought it was beginning to fail me but with the new blade it rips through a 2x4 like butter. That original blade cut everything including plastic and hardee plank on top of countless 2x4s, plywood etc. Ripped a lot of 2x4s, 1x4s etc.
Next up is my 1980 Schauer battery charger. Still works and even the box it came in still exists - tough cardboard back in the day.
And on the Zippo lighters; I just love the clink they make when opened or closed.
