    Went to the State Surplus Property warehouse sale today looking for a $5 office chair with good casters to use on another chair. That's all I wanted...

    And don't we all know how such things can (often?) turn out?? Didn't find the casters I needed, but I got (a bedpan, just shown, and) THIS...?? They had a whole boxful actually but all except this one were much more boring (newer) black plastic -- this was the only one with a polished metal case, and they were all the same asking price...???

    So now I've got one more "wher'd ya get *that?*" thing to hang in the kitchen somewhere I guess, esp. if I can find a blade for it...???

    It is a model# 9004-210 made by STRYKER CORPORATION of Kalamazoo, MI. Its backside label cautions to connect it to the proper sort of electrical outlet etc., an even more funnerer small tag identifies it as former property of the STATE CRIME LABORATORY. Its power switch is on the end of its motor housing with a heavy duty spring cord relief protector, its business end has a chuck/socket fitting that would have accepted some kind of actual saw blade and arbor assembly, which is not present and I have not yet researched.

    I'll bet everybody here owns a set of casters on something...but how many also have an electric autopsy saw...?? <giggle>

    Oh, and YES it does work, when I plugged it in and turned it on -- that wonderful whiney sound we all know from crime TV dramas... <bwahahahahaha>

      On a related note, the 1876 patent for furniture casters, and some background on the inventor that I uncovered while diving down another rabbit hole recently:
