Hey everyone I'm new to the world of electrology ,but I'm completely fascinated by the whole thing. I have a kree imperial electrolysis aperatus how ever it seems as if something is missing I was wondering if anyone could give me some more insight on this " model 200" it has the obvious 110v plug. a foot peddle with corresponding port/input and a "needle cord" port it's red. however there is no sponge cord or other input or port and maybe I'm wrong but I think there's supposed to be a negative and positive.

Holy cow. I bought one of these in the early 1970s ... and another one in 1976. These are thermolysis units (only) and full-fledged antiques. Those "pre-sets" were just buttons that did absolutely nothing; I mean not even connected to anything. I wonder what happened to Gero Artinian? Kree had a 90-hour course in NYC and they used to advertise, "Take a vacation in New York, and go home with a profession." How sweet?

That is sweet !!!!! I pulled it apart and had to replace the 110v cable the insulation around the wire was so old and dried out it was crack open and exposed I moved the wires slightly and all the rubber around it just fell off luckily I didn't plug it in beforehand . So everything comes on now but what are the chances of this thing still working ?

I have one of these and about to sell it. I forgot that I had it since I bought it on a whim then turned around and got the ST250 a couple of days later. It definitely has that antique charm.

Awesome so I did the eggwhite test to see if it would work unfortunately it doesn't but it's still very awesome. Thanks again everyone.

If mine doesn't sell on ebay and you want it just let me know and I'll send it your way if you cover shipping. I don't want to throw away a piece of history!

What is the difference between the Galvanic, Thermalysis and the Blend and is one better than the other? Which takes longer? I thought I read somewhere that one of these can take up to 3 minutes for each hair. Is that true?

Which one are those little home jobs?

Thanks

Galvanic destroys hair by creating a chemical reaction in the follicle, Thermolysis does so using heat and the Blend combines both.
You will get different opinions on which is better depending on whom you ask, but they all three work when done properly.
The pure Galvanic systems were the slow ones that you read about. 3 mins per hair would be extremely slow though and would be on a very low setting.
Galvanic is the mode of the little home numbers.

You can donate your antique epilators to Maria DeNicola and Stephanie Shields in Phoenix, AZ. They have a museum for epilators.
