People these days have no clue what these are, but do you remember?

As technology moves forward with great speed, seemingly making our lives easier by the minute, clever things from the past become more and more obsolete. This seems to apply in almost every area of our lives — from how we listen to music to how we get from point A to point B. Yes, everything is changing.

This leaves certain ‘technology’ of the past just a vague memory, with future generations completely unable to guess what some of those things we cherished back in the day were. Like these little ‘coins’…

But do you know what these were for?
If you’re over a certain age and reading this, then you might know what these are. Yes, they are ‘needle threaders’, which were a staple in any household.

And here are 3 other things that most of my friends will not recognize….
1. Oil can opener spout

These old school opener spouts were created to open tins of turbine engine oil and they are made with a sheet metal spout.

Back in the days when oil came in cans and not plastic bottles, oil spouts looked sort of like hand shovels with a triangular metal piece in the middle.

2. Church keys

Back in my days, you had to have these before twist off or pulltabs existed… The pointy ends of these tools were used to puncture beer and soda cans!

3. Record adapters

So, what is this? It probably looks more like a frisbee to kids than anything, but these nifty tools were used when you put a record onto the record player that was the wrong size you could use one of these adapters to get it to fit.

Share this article with your friends, and see if they remember these old tools, too!
