Heating element for Black&Decker

Hi,

Have a "just out of warranty" toaster oven: Black&DeckerTRO5900CT.
It has 4 identical heating elements. One is gone. They are 12" and are
straight.

Has anyone heard of a source for these? The are welded to wires, so it
appears they are not meant to be replaced, but it's easy for me to do, if I
can find one. Hate to toss and otherwise good appliance.

Regards,

RichK

I have a used Black&Decker 3/8" Electric Drill. The drill itself
works fine but the chuck broke. The heating elements in this drill
are in perfect condition. I know this for fact because even with the
broken chuck, this drill still functions perfectly as a hand warmer in
cold weather. I'll sell you this drill AS-IS for $20 plus shipping. I
doubt you can get your element that cheap, even if you can find one.

Send me private email if interested.

how to repair the landfills. They might not speak kindly of us.

From a similar toaster.

The trash, or:

Buy a similar or identical one, and when it breaks, you'll have at
least 3 good elements to repair the current one.

Call B&D. "It's a bit less than a year old..."

They will tell you to cut off the plug and send it to them. When they get
the plug, they'll send you a new oven.

I've done this three times with the B&D Spacemaker coffee pot. Finally sold
on eBay the last one they sent and got a Mr Coffee ($9.89 at WalMart) and a
appliance timer ($6.59 at Radiio Shack).

I sometimes buy two or three of something. Once they all die I start using
parts from the others to keep one going. Funny old world.

My very first electric drill is a B&D and still works fine - dated 1963.
It did have a factory overhaul in the '70s, though.

My first electric drill was a Skil 3/8" single speed model that I bought in the
Navy Exchange in Norfolk VA just before ending my enlistment in 1967. I built
an SCR speed controller for it a few months later from a construction article in
Popular Electronics magazine. Both still work flawlessly.
It has outlasted four B&D variable speed drills.

You're absolutely right, though, in that B&D is no longer the manufacturer they
once were, but for that matter, neither is Skil. Hang onto your old tools...
they don't make 'em like they used to.

But ISTR that first drill costing a week's wages. You can buy one for less
than an hour's now.

You're right.

10 or 20 years ago, I heard that the most sold power tool in the US
was a sabre saw. Why not a drill? Because everyone had a drill.

Heh heh. Now that's a poor B&D product by all reports - their sabre saw.

The last B&D thing I bought was a fairly expensive router. Not top of the
range, price wise, but not cheap either. Previously a Tradesman drill and
circular saw which are still excellent.

The router packed up with a seized bearing after not that much use but out
of warrenty. The plastic cooling fan had melted. The fan is part of the
armature...

No more B&D for me.

I remember an instructor saying:

"It is estimated that over a million quarter-inch drill bits are sold in
this country every year. Interestingly, not one buyer WANTED a quarter-inch
drill bit!

"What every single buyer wanted was a quarter-inch HOLE!"

The instructor was teaching the Dale Carniege Sales Course.

If they really wanted 1/4" holes, they also needed a good micrometer
to make sure the drills were actually 1/4".
