these were "acquired" today, not bought at an antique store. the comfo cap is practly in mint condition, looks worn from the scratches on top but must not have been for very long. plus this was under cover for its whole life. the hand blaster was found in the same spot. i can attest that it still works. i did the same thing when i got my big plunger type blaster, stuck my fingers on the terminals and pushed it down. it was like instinct. put the fingers on the terminals and twist...... yep it works :lol: so i cleaned them up and here ya go!

Yeah, you were right ... those were GREAT finds. Thanks for posting the pictures up.

The Comfo-Cap looks as if it was rarely used. No head grease on the head band. It looks brand new inside of there! Heck, the scratches could have been from where you found the cap.
