Quote from: tubaman on October 05, 2021, 07:14:32 AMHave to agree with @FABphones on this. The design is beautiful but it's just not safe to use anymore. Physically the all but unguarded blade is a hazard and electrically you have a 100 year motor running in an ungrounded metal case.Even if this were high up on the wall I'd want it rewired and properly grounded. I appreciate that USA 120V AC doesn't bite as hard as the 240V here in the UK does, but I'd still be very wary of plugging this in.
