3... 2... 1... BLEND!!!!

Within a couple weeks of my popcorn space command module, I came across this rocket-themed blender (sorry, blendOr) at an estate sale in the Tam O Shanter subdivision in Oakville.   It was late in the morning and I was surprised to see it still sitting there at $2.  This blender was made by Waring from the late '30's through 1948 and with it's Art Decco switch and Buck Rogers lines, it looks ready to enter the space race.  Someone had long ago replaced the cord with a vaccuum cleaner cord which had deteriorated significantly.  I replaced with a brand new (well, used from an old iron) cord.  It works great, although it's only one speed.
