Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others

I just bought one

At a thrift shop for $3. It gets HOT, and so does the plug in the wall. I'm more worried about the plug. The plug looks original, 1960s?

    Thanks very much. Replacing that should be pretty cheap, and worth the price. It's a cool gadget I got almost for free.

Typically the wire bends often and severely at the plug (i.e. when using storing, etc.) Every time it bends, there is a chance that the small copper strands in the wire break. The more strands that break, the smaller the wire effectively is. When electricity passes through a wire with a lot of resistance (such as the now-smaller wire right at the plug), it gets hot.
Bottom line: replace the cord before it starts a fire. Failing that, you might be able to cut off the bad section of cord and install a new plug where the cord is still good.

I have a Sharp VL-L270U that I bought at a thrift store. I dont have a battery charger and I've tried plugging it into a 12v lead but nothing ever happened. I want to get this thing on and running.

You will be needing a charger that is particularly suited to your device.
There are, out there, hundreds of different chargers, each is different.
Having said that, even if you get the right one, the unit you bought may not work, as it may have failed.
Some thrift stores have a bucket of chargers, but to start, look with a magnifying glass at your unit to see if it will tell you exactly and precisely what amps, ohms, volts, etc. you will need.
Remember too, the tiny plug can be reversed with the positive and negative interchanged, so you must get that right also.
God bless your efforts.,

$10-25 tops, you'd get a better tax write off by donating to a thrift shop.

Power supply

Replace it, either by buying "new" at one of those "big-box" electronics store, or by browsing at various "Thrift Shops" to find a router ($5 to $20). Usually, the Thrift Shop gives you 3 days to "test" it -- if it fails, you return it, for "store-credit".

1 package yeast
3 cups flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 T nonfat dry milk powder
1 T butter (room temperature)
1 1/4 cups warm water (Not straight hot. It'll kill the yeast.)
