Got it. It’s a tinfoil stein. Wear on head most days. If radiation and the whole array of other foul stuff coming your way overwhelms it, you can guzzle beer-flavored ethanol and pass out.

Dewey, Cheatem and Howe Copper Systems. That there was a shaky outfit, to say the least.

Hey! I used to work on the manufacturing line at DCHCS and your accusation is very ... um ... I very insulted that you would imply ... uh .. okay, you may have a point.

Normally, the “simlated copper wire” would be much of an issue, but they supplied it for use in the winding coils of the Lavoisier reharmoniser! As you may recall, you should only use pure copper wire in the Lavoisier reharmoniser.

Only on experimental models. You really didn’t see them until the Gizmonic zonerator was introduced which made the flux capacitor more economical to manufacture.

Thanks, I’m always getting the Gizmonic Zonerator confused with the Optogon Scalometer, and which one incorporated the Flux Capacitor. I guess it’s an age thing...

I believe it’s a rare 1923 copper clad coffee percolator made by the Dunce Bros. of Stupidville, Maine. They only made a dozen or so before they forgot how to make them, only to realize too late that they had overlooked making design model drawings before they began production.

I thought it was the 57's that had the problem, not the 58's. Oh well....my mistake.

That's an internet rumor spread by unscrupulous contractors, looking for work. If you research the CPSC logs, you will see, that although the 1957 Simmons gazorniflaptor was delisted by UL due to insufficient testing, the CPSC never issued a recall, and the actual reported incidence of fatal accidents was relatively low, approximately three fatalities were attributed to it, which was considered an acceptable risk. It you replace it with a current model, the likelihood of a Chinese counterfeit is probably greater than the risk from using a vintage model.

It’s an IED, a 155mm shell disguised as a pitcher for Jihadi Lemonade Stands.

It doesn’t matter what it is. Just take it on that antique roadshow TV show and they make something up proving its a priceless antique.

“The cone shaped top indicates it was made in the mid-1700’s in New England. These scratches on the bottom indicate it was made by Paul Revere. These dents on the spout are actually wooden tooth impressions. Yep, it’s a revolutionary tea kettle made by Paul Revere and belonging to George Washington.”

Absolutely. Aftermarket model, for an ‘81 Rushmobile. Some of those bad boys you had to replace three or four times!
