Dildos?

Naaaaaa..... butt stuff.

I have the meat grinder and coffee bean grinder. Knew 7/10.

Anything's a dildo if you're brave enough.

We had the meat grinder when I was a kid. I'm sure Dad still has it. Matter of fact I think we used it a couple years ago to make a very small batch of sauerkraut so we didn't have to get out the big guns.

Prototype Fleshlight™?

I have the grinder.  Don't use it much since the KitchenAid and Cuisinart took up residence though.

Those meat grinders were a pain in the ass to clean

Well, you were probably doing it wrong, then.

Also knew them all besides the hairdresser sink. Own (and use) the eggbeater drill, the meat grinder, the coffee grinder, and the sugar cube tongs.


Side note, an eggbeater drill is actually IMO better than a powered drill for a lot of tasks. Easier to control angle and depth, less chance of snapping a bit, and pretty fast to use. Compared to a plug-in drill, probably faster for a small number of holes if you allow that no time is lost plugging in and wrapping cord after. Add a bit and brace drill for larger holes, and you can torque through stuff that will set almost any heavy duty drill on fire.

Stick it in the dishwasher. Done.

Knew all of them except the hairdressing ones. Not really fair, unless you're a 80 year old woman you've probably never seen anything like either of those things.

I whiffed it on the surveying one, thought it was a sextant. Otherwise, same here. The hairdressing shiat is hard to identify.

You DID take it apart, yes?

Yes, but I was about 9 years old and it took me a while to figure that part out.

Ah, okey dokey then.  Makes sense.

Yes.

Yes, I can - and now I feel older than dirt .

I bought one of those vintage meat grinders and use it all the time to make "Ham Salad" which is basically a sandwich filling made from bologna, pickles, hard-boiled eggs, mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, and onion powder.  it's my wife's grandmother's recipe, and she just loves it.  Reminds her of spending summers in Illinois during grade school.
 
2018-02-02 11:32:02 AM  
Not bad.  I identified about 8 of the 10.

But then, our farm was practically a working museum anyway, and I think we had 5 or 6 of those things in actual use.

You are absolutely correct.  But if I have 500 holes to drill, the plug-in or battery powered drills start to look a lot more attractive.

I also agree with that.

There is a good reason why some people own multiple drills, including big 18v brushless and compact 12v, not to mention SDS rotary hammer "drills"

I have many, and each has a specialty. The only ones that rarely get used are the ones that are generalists- so not great at any one thing.

But the manual ones are the best for fine work

They aren't just meat grinders, they're generalized food grinders.  Before I could afford electric appliances, I used one for grinding coffee and making hummus.

Yeah I know, but since they're named meat grinders, I am technically correct. ;)

I have half of that shiat in my kitchen right now.

WTF is wrong with you people?

I just found mine.  It's a "universal food chopper."  Sounds kind of ominous.

Mine says meat chopper.
So we're both right \o/

Antique?

Maybe the hairdressing ones (& the surveying one because of GPS, but it was probably still in use within current (older) surveyors working history) but the rest I either have or have seen in use within the past few years.

/haven't used the coffee grinder for a while though, the electric one does get used daily fwiw

I keep a meat grinder just for making my great grandmother's cold meat salad, which is just ground up leftover roast, onions, celery, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper.

6/10, I didn't recognize the hairdressing stuff or the surveying tool.

There are much more arcane looking tools with very mundane purposes but for the use of a fun article, a little reward on recognition is nice.
