My Grandma had a pressure cooker that look just like it! I wonder if it also makes delicious jellies and jams

Step right up folks, see the new turn table that can extend your record play times all the way up to 8 hours with 2 hour increment settings in between. Yes, now you can play a record while making dinner while you are at work. When you get home your dinner is done and so is your record though.
Ok, I'm just being silly.:) I couldn't resist.

Not an attractive table though, especially for the money. (I can't even count that high).

I wonder if the recording tape leader is better than the standard rubber belts used normally? At least as far as durability or life expectancy and such goes.
