That's an interesting thingy you have there!?!

By

Here is something that I found in one of the kitchen drawers when we purchased our home. The previous owner had been in the home since it was built and she now is going to an assisted living facility. You can see from the picture below that it is clearly labeled as a "Microwave Leakage Monitor". Have any of you ever seen something like this? My guess is that this is something that was sold to people around the same time as radiation detection devices. "just in case it ever happened you would know"???

 Probably the same salesperson.

 

 A scam or something legit??  What say you?

Have you seen one of these before? Do you have one of these thingys?

                        

Hmmm I'm not sure if the one I have is defective but the needle never moves. Maybe it never did.

 

So there Rainers...... have you seen one of these thingys? I would love to know if these are legit (most likely not) and if you have one of these in one of your drawers.

My family had one of these in the old days. My father was so concerned that the microwave door would get sprung and radiation would leak out.

WOW! I guess it just goes to show that people really will buy anything! . . . However, I did have this one friend in college that did have a microwave that leaked. Every time you used it a clear liquid would leak out from underneath. . . . but since none of us died or mutated I guess it was not that big of a deal. ;)

"I listen for a living." It's all about you.

I remember seeing this exact device when I was a kid working in a restaurant with lots of microwaves.  That was back between 1975 and 1980 in San Francisco.  Thanks for the memory.
