Primitive Bread Toaster Restoration - 1918 Siemens-Schuckert

  • Published on Jan 19, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • In this restoration video, I restore a beautiful bread toaster from the 1910-the 40s.
    More about the restoration:
    When I saw this piece for sale on a site similar to eBay, I knew from the start that it would be the subject of an exciting restoration video. I didn't think twice and bought the toaster even though I wasn't sure it would ever work again or that I would find replacement parts. This toaster is quite rare; I have not been able to find one like it anywhere. The restoration process went well, with no problems but with great surprises. I did not expect it to be entirely brass made. I decided not to nickel-plate its surface but to mirror-polish it. It will look great in a kitchen as decoration. Although I managed to make it work, unfortunately, I couldn't find a similar power cord, so I had to improvise for now. I'm still looking and hoping to find one, but chances are slim, considering I need help finding a similar model on the internet. I worked on this toaster for two weeks with much love and patience, and I am thrilled with how it turned out. And the toast was amazingly delicious!
    If you have any questions about what I used and why please don't hesitate to ask! I answer every one!
    More about antique bread toaster:
    Frank Shailor of General Electric 1909 brought out the first successful toaster version. The D-12 model consisted of a cage-like device with a single heating element. It could only toast one side of the bread at once; the bread had to be flipped by hand to toast both sides. I don't want to mislead anyone, but this toaster was made simultaneously because the bread is turned by hand and is quite rudimentary, although it looks great.
    In the 1940s, toasters that turned bread by themselves or with pop-ups had just appeared, so this toaster was possibly made in the 1910s-1940s.
    Before the development of the electric toaster, sliced bread was toasted by placing it in a metal frame or on a long-handled toasting fork and holding it near a fire or over a kitchen grill.
    If you have more information or one just like it, please write to me! Also, remember to subscribe to take advantage of upcoming restoration projects!
    A good willing subscriber sent me an email with more precise information about this antique toaster. So, it was made after 1918 by Siemens-Schuckert-Werke.
    Siemens-Schuckert (or Siemens-Schuckertwerke) was a German electrical engineering company headquartered in Berlin, Erlangen, and Nuremberg that was incorporated into Siemens AG in 1966.
    Siemens Schuckert was founded in 1903 when Siemens & Halske acquired Schuckertwerke. Subsequently, Siemens & Halske specialized in communications engineering, and Siemens-Schuckert in power engineering and pneumatic instrumentation. During World War I, Siemens-Schuckert also produced aircraft. It took over the manufacturing of the renowned Protos vehicles in 1908. The company had a factory producing aircraft and other parts in World War II at Monowitz.
    The Siemens Schuckert logo consisted of an S with a smaller S superimposed on the middle, with the smaller S rotated left by 45 degrees.[notes 1][2] The logo was used into the late 1960s, when both companies merged with the Siemens-Reiniger-Werke AG to form the present-day Siemens AG.
    I also discovered that one of these toasters can be seen in the Vienna Museum.
    Many thanks to Volkmar Kostka for unlocking this mystery!

      Hi - I was wondering something. I love watching your restoration videos.
      Do you take into account the increase (or decrease) in value with restoration? Some antique and vintage items are more valuable unrestored, and some increase in value with minor restoration, but decrease with major overhauls.
      How do you determine what items to restore, which ones to leave with just a good cleaning?
      My mom collected antiques for 50 years, and was always wary of restoring anything.

    • Rusty Shades Restoration
      Rusty Shades Restoration  4 months ago +6

      Thank you! You asked some excellent questions. I search for pieces that need to be restored, mainly dented, bent with missing parts and rust. Otherwise, I'm not really into it. I have been collecting antiques for years, and some of them shouldn't be touched; for example, I will never make a roman empire coin shine, but a dented 100 yrs toaster, yes.
      Why? Because a roman coin has a patina that protects it and gives authenticity. A Roman coin is rare as well.
      A toaster like this one was mass-produced, and there was no patina, even though some people consider even rust to be patina, but not myself. Rust will make that object vanish in time; it is not protective.
      So yes, I choose them to these conditions and with this mindset.
      I hope I have managed to answer your questions. Definitely will be more to say, but I just woke up, and I need a coffee first! 😆

    The shape of the toaster reflects the shape of the breads available of those times. This toaster was made before the invention of sliced bread.

    Man that thing came l out gorgeous!
    They used so much brass back then because there was no stainless steel, and you didn't want a rusty toaster. I don't know if this was known at the time but Brass would also have some natural anti-microbial qualities due to the copper content, which would be good for a kitchen appliance.

    Kinda awesome to see electric stuff from the 1900's especially when you think about it only very well off people had electricity then so this would have been a high end and rare item . Beautiful job restoring it!

      This toaster, and robust appliances like it, were related to the Great Depression. Companies would make a lot of money upon the release of the appliances and they lasted a very long time. So long that ppl weren’t buying anymore. So sales dwindled.
      Companies were being invested upon based on their past sales, but losing business quickly. It’s one of many causes that lead to the Great Depression.

      They also have them to just sit next to your fireplace coals.👍

    • Terrie Martinez
      Terrie Martinez 4 months ago +4

      @Menuki I think sales dwindled because new and improved versions came along. I burnt more toast than I toasted with a toaster like this, because you had to flip it, and you couldn't adjust the heat.
      My gramma always said burnt toast was good for the heart.🤦 Then came along a pop up timer one and that was just the cats meow.

    • Menuki
      Menuki 4 months ago +2

      @Terrie Martinez the first pop up toasters came out in 1921 and were for commercial use only. Household model were long after that. Without the internet, information (ad campaigns) took a long time to travel. The sentiment was also very different then, the gross majority of ppl weren’t chasing new technology like we do now. If it worked, why replace it. You theory also assumes it’s a different company making the pop up toaster, when it could be the same company’s new model. Which then fails why there’s little repeat business.
      My comment was on the build quality of appliances, (ovens, washing machines, vacuums, etc.) during that time period. If the never break down you never buy a new one. Companies would see a huge initial rush, but no repeat business. New tech has always been more expensive, making it a rich man’s game. The average person just doesn’t do it. Even now, for all the ppl standing in line for the new iPhone, there’s 100x more who don’t care and won’t buy a new phone until the old one is unusable

    Amazing restauration! Great to see an electric device from that era as it is unfamiliar to many how far electrification was back then. It is funny to realize that 1918 was 30 years after the first German electric car appeared.

    My grandparents had a similar one, albeit made in US, but theirs was 110V and used a two wire plug that resembled those now used for current corn poppers and hot pots. They seldom used it, preferring the pyramid one for the cookstove. This one is prettier by far.

  • M. Jewell

    Sweet little toaster! The plugs (or where the plugs would fit in the body of the toaster) remind me of the twin plugs I had on an old Singer cabinet sewing machine, the kind that folded inside a nice wood table. The plugs were Bakelite or rubber/early plastic, but had that split bunny ear shape of yours, with a cloth covered cord. Perhaps an old sewing machine or other electrical appliance could yield some parts for you. Also, for working on soft metals like brass, I highly recommend covering your hammer heads with a layer or two of chamois leather. You can wire it onto the head of the hammer because it will need replacing as it wears. You will notice a big difference in the surface of your work and avoid unnecessary marks/scuffs. Thanks for this entertaining video--I hope you heated/burned off some of the fumes before making the first slices of toast??

    I watched this restoration twice. I have about 7 primitive type toasters because I like collecting them. Enjoyed the process!!!!!

    You did a nice job. To get the brass to shine without scratched try wet sanding with wd40 as the lubricant.

      Thank you, I know this technique, but in this particular case, I didn't want to get a 100% full mirror effect because is not a blade, especially for interior or bottom parts. Some minor marks on it don't affect anyone.

    Nice restoration! Should the side doors have more spring in them, to hold the bread in place, I wonder?

    • Rusty Shades Restoration
      Rusty Shades Restoration  4 months ago +2

      Thank you! Yes, but I've decided to don't hook them up again because it will only help to burn the bread on the edges because of pressure.

    Amazing job 👍 a nice surprise I bet to find it was all made out of Brass. I love it. Polished brass is the best. I hope you find some original plugs for it. Glad you didn't modify it suit a regular plug 👏🏼 I have a strange urge now to go and cook some toast and Vegemite Great work.

      Thank you! Yes, it was a lovely surprise 😮 I hope to find original plugs; now I know the brand, thanks to my beautiful community, and I know what to search on the web or at the flea market.
      Bone appetite!

      What, you eat vegemite? I thought it was only for repelling drop-bears 😂

    Bardzo dobra robota 😉 ja bym pomyślał jeszcze nad wymianą sprężyn od klapek. One powinny trzymać klapki w pozycji zamkniętej a otwarcie wymaga użycia siły. Co do kabla zasilającego to można spróbować wykorzystać końcówkę od prodiża i bo wtyki wyglądają na identyczne. Można wykorzystać same końcówki i zalać żywicą lub pobawić się w dorobienie obudowy z teflonu. Pozdrawiam 😉

    Muito bom.. gostei do polimento que vc faz, mas notei que ficou muitos riscos nas peças... Essa ligação dos fios no aparelho é assim mesmo?
