So I've acquired a Goblin Teasmade D25. It has a few problems that need to be solved before it can be used. Is there any place where I can find out about stuff like that?

You could always ask us; I'm sure we could help you puzzle out most of them.

My teasmade just arrived. I'm now the proud owner of D25 #154533.

From the state of the wiring, I need to break out the soldering iron before I plug in anything. That's another domestic fire waiting to happen. Fabric covered wire of the steam iron type for everything should be the bare minimum. Ah well, next stop hardware store.

Late end result post: Teasmade works, makes fine tea at the appointed time. No soldering iron necessary, that's good old screw-on wiring even a layman could repair.

Gentlemen,
A Teasmade! I had one in the 60s, and I will never forget it. It began to boil in the darkness, very threatening pressure build-up as the water was preparing to rush over to the teapot; and then just as it seemed about to explode the light went on. It was very like being asleep on the tracks by a steam engine when a train is about to leave the station.
One then faces the day in a state of refreshed nervous wreckage.
That being said, I loved it!

Take my camel, dear, said my aunt Camellia, climbing down from that animal on her return from high mass. The camel, a white Arabian Dhalur (single hump) from the famous herd of the Ruola tribe, had been a parting present, its saddle-bags stuffed with low-carat [sic] gold and flashy orient gems, from a rich desert tycoon. . . .

Dear Fellow,
Ah, yes, the BUZZ. Other people buzzed in the 60s at parties; I had a Teasmade!
