Have a Sears compressor from the early 1960s that still works fine. Best product though? The one that has returned the most value has to be my Microsoft QB4.5 program. With it, I was able to develop software that I completely own, and the sales of that software has supported me and my wife for years. The best $80 I ever spent.

Compaq Presario in 1998. Apart for introducing me to the world of computers, it is still running today!

I say my father buying a Immerson electric rotating fan in the late 50's. He used it in his shop and I am using it on my country porch in the summer.

My trusty (used) Honda Civic. It has never given me even one problem in seven years. I will even get the entire extended warranty money back in a few months.

The 90 horsepower Yamaha outboard I bought in 1988 for my crab boat. 4000+ hours on it (in salt water) and has never been in the shop, not once.

Chesapeake Bay blue crabs run for their lives when they hear it crank up!

Gotta be my old and trusty 9.6 volt Makita driver/drill. Saved a lot of time and effort over the years. The Super Chief thought I was crazy for spending $100 on a cordless tool.

A Crumbsweeper. My sister gave me one about 30 years ago and my stepdaughter still has it and loves it. It's a hand-held capsule-shaped machine similar to an old carpet-sweeper, but with only one bristle roller that flicks crumbs from the table cloth up into the plastic fuselage of the thing. It's fantastic to pick up any dry spills on any carpet or rug or carmats, too, and a lot easier than getting the vacuum out. Google "crumbsweeper".
