Power take off on blender?
Not really electronics or home repair, but you guys seem the most
likely to know.
I have part of a Black and Decker Handy Blender, but not the model
that I found with a picture on the web. Suffice to say, it's a
And there is a mini-jack on the base, and it is in parallel with the
motor, except there is a small diode in series with the jack. So I
guess the jacke would have had about 60 volts DC. What was the
purpose of that jack?
(There is also some part I don't recognize in parallel with the
diode/jack. It looks like a small diode, but tan and partly made of
glass, and the white band is on the same end as the actual diode, and
my 9-volt digital multimeter shows the resistance as "infinite" even
on the 20 meg scale, in both directions.)

The power takeoff is standard on KitchenAid mixers. There are a whole
host of attachments. I'd imagine the blender takeoff is similar, but
the electrical jack is a bit odd. No idea what would attach to a
blender and require mechanical power and electric.
I'm sorry. I wasn't clear. I don't have the whole device, only the
base, but I didnt' identify any mechanical connection. Just the
Z, the diode and jack are in series with each other, and the small
unidentifed part is in parallel with the two of them together. It's
awful small to be a capacitor. It's the same size as those tiny
diodes, a mm. in diameter and 1.5 mm in length. And it has that
little bit that is clear plastic or glass.
I'll look at the Kitchen Aid appliances if they sell them in stores,
and maybe even read the insstruction manual.

It had a mechanical connection to the thing above it, that it blended.
Just none to whatever plugged into the 60 volt jack. Didn't you refer
to a possible something that had both? If not, that's what I thought
That wasn't me, but someone did. I think the point was that perhaps
something attached to both the mechanical connection you describe, AND the
power connection. But none of us are clear on what would need both of these
Back in the late 60's, a friend of mine had a blender that was a
blender, food processer, juice extractor, ice crusher, and God knows
what else. It had a whole box of attachments and heads for it. It had
enough power to dig post holes if you turned it over. I do remember
that it was made in Switzerland. It had a heating unit, (a round plate)
that dropped into the knurled collar of the blender and then the plate
with the beaters/knives sat on, then the glass jar sat on that. This
plate unit had a wire that plugged into a socket on the base.
It was used to mix and cook sauces. It even had a push button that when
depressed, would cycle the mixing while the heat was on.
I almost died when I found out that she paid over $500. for it; a lot
of money at the time.
We were living in the Bahamas at the time, and she bought it on a trip
to Miami at, if memory serves me correct, the Dade County Fair.
This was a high end product, and I believe the OP said this was a Black
