What's so impressive is these tools are all very old and still work perfectly. They were made during a time when quality trumped Today I believe things are made with the intent for them to be easily broken and disposable.

Thanks for letting me know I am officially OLD now; I knew what those gadgets were! Concerning the lemon press... Did you know that from the mid-1800s well into the early 20th century, serving tea was nearly an art form? It was as much about class and status as the tea itself. So fancy gadgets designed to, say, keep your well-heeled guests from squirting acidic citrus juice into their eyes or staining their gloves or dresses showed even more class and panache. Just a fun fact! And you have the nicest smile!

Someone else might have mentioned this but I didn't read ALL the comments to find out.

Regarding the pie crimper: you didn't try the little knife edge which works great for cutting the dough. Also, you missed the opportunity to use the devise on the reverse side from the crimping wheel. The little design of 2 arcs and 2 dashes is for pressing into the top crust dough several times (before lifting from rolling surface) to make the steam vents.

I have this gadget and use it quite often - because pies are the best of foods!

the orange juicer you twist it in til you hit the threads then pull out the core you made then the juice should flow out better

You are holding the cheese slicer incorrectly. Hold it horizontally. The tines help measure the thickness of the slice and keep it uniform.

I watched my grandmother use the egg whisk in her kitchen when I was a child. She didn't use it in a bowl, however. After frying the bacon, she would add the eggs to the hot skillet, then a little milk and seasoning. She then whisk it continuously until the eggs were fluffy. I remember her scrambled eggs were always so light and airy.

I think on the cheese slicer the tines are to give you uniform cheese slices. if you turn the slicer 90 degrees so that it's parallel to the table and the tines are pointed at the cheese they will act as guides keeping the slices even an uniform.
Also, the end of the jar opener is a can opener. The big side goes inside the rim of the can and the small side hooks against the bottom outside edge of the rim. then you pry against it forcing the large side into the can. Do that all the way around to open the can.
Thanks for a great video!

"So I put together a little pie..."

What magic is this!?

if you draw the pie crust crimper the other way, it will slice off the extra dough as it crimps...

The Jar opener was used predominantly for Mason Jars.

Author — CrickettMoon always an adventure

Extra bonus for the pie crimper: if you turn it around, the 'blade' will trim the crust to size as you crimp the edge.

Love the ole Timey tools. You can see the fact that it is still here is really something. How long do you think any thing made today would last? See everything works perfectly.

Love your videos, Emmy! Wonderful job. Just enough commentary to be interesting, without any hemming and hawing, or time wasting babble. You explain everything clearly, and handle the tools and gadgets with competence. Excellent, I wish more YouTubers had your flair. You go, Girl!
