We were looking for replacement parts for a vintage Osterizer 825W blender today. The original glass jar is nowhere to be found so it must have been broken. So far we've been using mason jars which have the same threading. The blade leaks and rattles when shaken. The gasket is dried out but surprisingly doesn't crack.

We were wondering whether a cheap modern blender would outperform this one. My brother suggested that more power was the main thing, but I'm sure a lot more must matter. For instance the Osterizer takes care not to mount the motor directly to the chassis. It also has a rubber decoupler between the blade and motor. This all must be important for energy transfer. Not to mention motor speed vs force and inertia.

Of course at 825W this might outperform anything reasonably cheap outright.

I wonder what would be the tune-up procedures on the motor and what kind of grease I should use. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove the old decoupler which is stuck on.

Also, the blender proudly bears the words "SOLID STATE".

It has exactly ONE diode, as far as I can tell.

Now there's your problem. Only one diode. What can you do with only one diode. Hardly seems adequate.

I got your low-jitter clock source right here:
Ytterbium atomic clocks set record for stability
Quote:
The ytterbium clock ticks are stable to within less than two parts in 1 quintillion (1 followed by 18 zeros), roughly 10 times better than the previous best published results for other atomic clocks.
