Default Stuff That Lasts/Quality

A recent purchase got me thinking about stuff that lasts for a long time and is considered quality by most consumers, so let's have some internet forum fun!

The parameters to add stuff to the list are as follows:

1. The item needs to be in current production

2. The item needs staying power and a consistent reputation; for instance my Remington 870 shotgun I bought in 1992 is great quality and it is lasting really well for me but I have heard enough about the new 870's that I can't say Remington 870 shotguns 'last' or are 'quality'. Basically the item can't have any downward trends-->firearms are going to be a tough one to put on the list!

So let's name stuff that lasts, I'll start:

Speed Queen Washer/Dryer

Cast Iron (most anything but I really like Lodge brand)

KitchenAid Mixers

RCBS reloading presses

Filson Coats/Filson anything

Wingworks upland hunting vests

Let's keep this going!

Toro lawn mowers, mine is going on 30 years with a 1/2 acre to mow in growing season.

The old Kenmore that Sears sold, not this new electronic junk. I have a washer and drier that are going on 31 years with minor repairs.

The problem with putting cast iron on the list is what can go wrong with them as long as you don't break them?

The same with single stage reloading presses, you have a single or two moving parts.

I just thought of this one.

The land line phone. It has been around over 100 years and will outlast any smart phone out there. They have been thrown through walls and onto floors and just keep on working.

I still hunt with my grandpa's 16 gauge Browning A5 (late 50's model). I've been very impressed with the old A5. I'm not sure how the new ones are.

Clarq got me thinking shotguns. Old model 870 wingmaster. My dad has one I believe is from the 70s. I have a newer wingmaster 2012 I think - while it's still nice the older ones seem way better.

I should have read the OP more carefully. I'm sorry. I'll make up for it. Estwing hammers!
