Vintage Toastmaster Model 1B8 Toaster Refurbished Rewired LNC 1073

Sorry, this item has sold.


A gift for the person who has everything! This very rare model 1B8 was made only in 1938 and 1939. Charles Strite designed this beauty using an inverted "sunbeam" debossed on both sides. It is the ONLY time "Toastmaster" used this design. I suppose it was to compete with the "Sunbeam" logo on "Sunbeam's" new auto toaster.
This piece is built like a tank, it is amazing how heavy duty it is and intricate the build. Took me 7 hours to dismantle, clean, re-assemble and re-adjust this toaster. I could not get a picture of lifting trays very well, you will just have to believe me that they are super clean almost back to original condition. It works like a charm. I put on a new cord that looks like an old cloth cord and matches the motif, with brown. The handles and adjuster are brown Bakelite as is the base. New wires inside too so it is entirely safe to use and can be used daily if you want. The crumb tray is a little funky since you have to unscrew it to fully empty the crumbs. I will send instruction and show you how to do it and how to keep it in good condition.
Chrome is in excellent condition, no major scratches. New cord. Completely refurbished, cleaned and working like new. It has a timer and a bimetal control to adjust toast color. A little dark on the "light" setting but that's the way it is.
Cleaned out, wired and adjusted its ready to look great and make great toast in your kitchen!!!
Toastmaster Products, Div. of McGraw Electric, Elgin, Illinois. Brown Bakelite and gleaming chrome plate. 115 Volts AC, 10 amps. Weighs 5 pounds with the new cord.
Note: This toaster is in the Smithsonian National Museum.

All items come with cords.
All cords are either new or old style that have been tested and refurbished.

What are materials

Waffle grids are cast aluminum.
Toasters are metal
Coffee pots vary and I always tell you the materials.

How will I keep it working and will it work?

Everything I sell is refurbished and in like new working order.
If something goes wrong, I will fix it so its like a lifetime (mine LOL) warranty.

Is it safe?

It will be as safe or safer than the original manufacturer when it was made. Many times it is safer since I remove and replace asbestos wiring and unsafe cords. Note: There are some items I no longer refurbish because they cannot be made safe. I check every item for stray voltage and many times it is too high so that unit is scrapped.

What does Restored and Rebuilt Mean?

It means its been re-wired with modern high heat resistant wire, thermostats re-set, gunk, grease, stains have been removed. Restored to original factory specifications. Cords and wiring safe. All components checked for safety. Everything back to very good to mint condition nothing less.
