    Picked this up two weeks ago and forgot about it. That is until I was cleaning off my kitchen counter. Good thing as it actually works, so far I have been fun sharpening my kitchen knives along with opening a can or two. Not bad for something made in 1956. According to the You Tube video I am going to post this was the first successful electric can opener made. Although he says that is the model 58-H.
    It was made by Union Die Casting Company in Whittier, Ca. They should have stuck with this design looks much nicer than the later models.

      I remember winning an electric can opener in the late 60's or so. Love this one.

      Pretty cool! Looks to be much more robust than today's models.

      Thank you very much Phil. It would be a collectors item now if it survived.
