#19 never replace those they might need a new belt every couple of decades but they will last almost forever.
they just don't make things like they used to. because of stupid planned obsolescence.

#3 I used these in the army (back when they still had C-Rations) and still have some that I keep for emergencies. The only thing that beats this is the Australian version that works the same but is longer and includes a small spoon at the end.

#19 I have a 50+ year old A606 in the same Harvest Green color that still does at least 2 loads a week, cost me $50 about 20 years ago, and has had only rubber parts replaced. I might, someday, take it apart and rebuild it, but it's not going anywhere. And, after lasting this long, it really gives new meaning to the Lonely Maytag Repairman adds from the 70s & 80s..

#20 Herman Miller make great chairs if you have a bad back. Get them setup properly and they can really help.
