    my buffer.
    goes back to the 70s or early 80s i believe.
    it has wheels on it so it won't send you halfway across the room when you fire it up.
    i trained on a floor buffer like that and still have the bruises.
    i could never figure out the technique.

    My 1953 Ford tractor sees regular duty. I've got a 1969 Cub Cadet garden tractor that saw regular duty until the implement clutch finally gave up the ghost. I've got the parts on the bench to get her back in business.

    I still consider my 1987 Boston Whaler/Evinrude, 1988 Honda XR250R and 1989 BMW 535i fairly new. lol

    When I was in AF basic training and at my technical school I did a lot floor buffering. I hate to say it, but I loved doing it. I was in my "zone" when I operated it.

    I don't have it yet, but I plan to get a 1978 to 1980 Ibanez Artist electric guitar. Those were some special years for Ibanez making great guitars.

    I know the market, and I'll be able to see the guitar in person and play it first. It's old Fenders and Gibsons that cost an arm and a leg. Old Ibanezes, not so much.

    It's funny because I inherited this one when my grandpa passed away. Nobody else wanted it and I was like "MINE!"

    My wife. Some may argue she's not mechanical. I beg to differ.

    After that probably my tortilla press. I'm guessing it's near 70 years old.
