Vintage Treasures From Grandpa

As I explore the many handmade garage cabinets my grandpa built in this old house, I continually come across more and more treasures. Most of the tools I use are leftovers from him. The other day while I was rummaging through some old boxes, I found these:

An old electric oven! I don't know why I'd ever use this, but it looks cool. I guess if my ovens ever break, I can plug this in and cook a turkey.

I think this is an old butcher scale, but I'm not positive. My grandpa was a butcher, and this looks like a scale, so I did the math.

The back looks really cool. It's got a state inspection sticker still on the side. I love things from the past!

I have no idea what this is... but I know it's old. It dispenses what looks like masking tape. Any ideas??

This one is actually grandma’s rather than grandpa’s. It’s an old tempura/fondue maker… brand spanking new, but definitely old.

I have no idea what to do with any of these (except the tempura maker). But they are definitely cool finds at the house!

    • You are right Lilly! It even has a sponge/brush on the bottom to wet the tape as it dispenses. Too bad I have no need of it right now. haha.
      And yes, let’s go get some meet and weigh it! (then have a massive bbq and consume all of it)
