How did you get your hands on a 50+ y.o. Oster?

I bought it new in the early 1960's, as a Christmas gift, for my then 67 year old Grandmother.

We used this old kind growing up, with the metal gears (gears ?...the parts on the bottom of the canister and the parts coming out of the top of the base).

About 10 years ago someone gifted me with a blender that had 'gears' that were not metal, my son put the canister on the base (and it didn't sit right but he didn't notice), and broke everything off...the gears. I refused to replace it until I found what I wanted.

I looked for at least a year and found an oster with the metal gears in the clearance aisle of a big box store. I bought one for a friend too. It's going on three years, it always fits together just right, runs long and doesn't get hot, the gears are as good as the day I bought it. I recommend oster, and I recommend having metal gears.

(someone will probably have the right word for 'gears')
