I have a Kirby vacuum from 1960 that was my mother's. It still works, but because all stuff that it sucks up passes thru the impeller blades, one has to be careful. I also have a newer Kirby with one broken blade from sucking up a quarter....costs too much to repair.

I do have an ancient waffle iron that will work, but which I never use.

Oh.. and I have a Windows 3.1 machine with a pair of SCSI SYQUEST drives attached that only needs a mouse (parallel port? odd cable..)
I booted it up a few months ago, but you can't do everything just from the keyboard.

and a couple of portable power saws that my wife's father had 50 years ago...they get VERY little use.
