Do it yourself: Restoring the feet on the Toastmaster 1A1

Welcome to the first “DYI” post on Driving for Deco. A couple of weeks ago I purchased a 1920’s Toastmaster 1A1 toaster, in remarkably good shape. One condition issue was its missing original, rubber feet.

Chris came up with a great idea, using rubber washers to replace the long missing original feet. I purchased two packages of 1/4″ rubber grommets (two grommets to a package) at a local hardware store. They worked beautifully. Here is a video that demonstrates how to attach the grommets –

 

 

The cost of the grommets were $1.18 per package and the total time to attach them was about one minute. This is a great “Do it Yourself” project because anybody can do it in no time flat. Here are a couple of pictures showing the finished project.
