    A good machine. I am still using a Quad 33/303 amplifier which must be well over 40 years old now I think, but the only thing that has worn out is my ears. Hearing aids ruin the hi-fi experience totally.

    I have a Black and Decker Workmate bought in 1975 that is still an important piece of kit in my workshop. Battered, charred but still working.
    Also some kitchen knives that were wedding presents in 1973.

    I remember what my grandfather told me: "I've had that hammer for the last 30 years. It's only had three new handles and two new heads.
