Plugs
« on: February 08, 2016, 06:25:44 PM »
They ain't what they used to be.
The black ones attached to the end of the tool cord and screwed into a Masda socket (light)

The white porcelain Hubbel Plug screwed into a Masda socket so a 2 wire plug could be inserted into the Hubbel adapter.

Imagine Granny standing on a chair so she could screw the plug  for her electric iron into the ceiling light.

google Aunt Phil can't spell for s#!t.

Mazda is a standard 120 volt screw type light socket.  Nomenclature predates GE buying Mazda and Mazda was used by General Electric into the 50s.

Don't worry Aunt Phill, your spelling can't be as bad as mine.


They still make those today. Sure a little different design but the concept is the same.

No, they're sure not what they used to be.  Notice the cords in the center of this picture.

I have seen a 1920s magazine ad where the house wife was doing just that.  Screwing her iron cord into the ceiling fixture.   Remember seeing quite a few cords with that plug, at my gandfathers house/
