You Got Massage Oil On My Sander!
The tool, "when fitted with sandpapers, completes your handycraft projects. But when you add a massage pad, you can smooth out aching muscles" -- wait, it gets better -- "at a rate of 14,400 strokes per minute". I'm no massage conniseur, but the fastest massager I found online maxed out at 8,000 oscillations per minute. Dremel doesn't mess around. But, make sure you don't mix up the sanding pad with the massage pad...at that speed, a simple mistake could cause instant death. No gears, no brushes, no oil...no mercy. Found in the Jan 1956 issue of The Family Handyman.

Vintage Geek Link Round Up
Vintage Goodness helps us all declare our Vintage Geek Pride.
Speaking of geeks, Michael Duff made me smile with his comment on the definition of "geek":
Past Perfect Vintage gives us history lessons on the inaugural dress of former First Ladies.
The Urban Dictionary defines “geek” as: The people you pick on in high school and wind up working for as an adult.
All this really proves is that the Urban Dictionary is written by geeks.
Cheetah Velour knows her stuff. The proof lies in the stuff she didn't buy -- and with good reason!
Crafting geeks, I wonder how well you know your pine cones!
