Kalorik JU1400 comparison (WHL #60F1)

Just a minor comparison post as I’m in the mood to clean up my place and take things apart. An intent that usually only achieves one of those things, as taking apart stuff makes a larger mess than just the original thing sitting somewhere…

This is (well, was, but it’s not broken in a destructive teardown, just taken apart so that it theoretically could be reassembled) the vacuum cleaner that I think my mom bought without asking in September 2007 when I was about to start studying. Clearly got less use than the family vacuum of similar vintage, just due to the sheer size difference of the places, let alone I did not friggen vacuum every week. […]


Sport exhaust pop and crackle of a…Dirt Devil M2881-0 vacuum cleaner? (WHL #60)

Someone had fun. With the old crap that everyone technical gets for free when visiting family. This time: An old vacuum cleaner, probably close to ten years old. Described to me as “makes weird noises, shut off immediately” (sure). Oh, and of course it was someone else that used the thing when it went from fully working to probably defective. Aah, family.

Plugged it in at home and had a giggle:

People spend thousands of Euros to make their shitty cars even more ridiculous, and here’s my extremely low riding Dirt Devil asphyxiating on pop and crackle noises :lol:

Alright, further disassembly just reduces weight and didn’t uncover anything stuck inside. […]


Kitchen Egg Timer Boiled Soft Hard Medium Color Changing Boiled Hourglass JAPAN (WHL #19)

Look, we’re steering off track…even fewer electronic parts than in the last slimy post! We’re back to the steam era!

I’m not planning to become an universal gadget tester, but I had to check this one which was in today’s mail. I got it from eBay merely two weeks ago and I paid 4.99 USD for it, including economy shipping. And now I’m a proud owner of some Nippon stamp worth 180 Yen, which in itself is around 1.5 USD. I didn’t buy on Ali this time because they only offer generic or German “Pearl” branded items (go figure). […]
