I started an earlier thread to discuss options to remodel an old 1972 house.
I mentioned it has a lot of weird gadgets and someone asked me to post some
pics. So here are some of them...
Kitchen counter top has a flush mount blender:
Press the metal button and this pops up:
A wall mount electric can opener - all rusted too:
A pocket toaster:
Ancient intercom radio:
Inwall entertainment center?
Top of the entertainment center is an AM FM radio:
Below that is an eight track tape player:
and below that if you flip it down is a record player with a record on it:
Any idea how I open these windows with an awning handle twenty feet up?
OK here is a puzzle...in the maid's quarter there is a recessed cabinet with
a ironing board:
see the left side there is a verticall mounted thing? A closer look:
There is a light bulb, an outlet, a timer, a switch...I have no idea what it
is. The light bulb is to provide light while ironing? But there are
overhead lights in the room. What is the timer for? The outlet can be used
to plug in an iron I guess...
I found a central air vac in the garage...but it does not work. Each room
has an outlet in the room to attach a hose (no hose to be found anywhere).
I wonder if it is worth the $ to replace the vac unit and get new hoses. or
it is better to use just a normal vaccum. Are central air vac really that
convenient? It seems to be a lot of work attaching and detaching the hoses.
Oh one more thing...what is this?
It is inside the garage. I turned it on and nothing. It seem to be
connected to the sprinkler system but it does nothing.
I found more gadgets today. Will post more pics as I take them.
