Looks like mine from the 1970's which is still going strong. 

The plug makes me think ’70s might be more accurate. I don’t remember when the switch to the polarized flanged plugs 🔌 occurred.156282CD-8433-4CC5-8DB4-1F5BC10835A6.thumb.jpeg.459ed52cece0edd3267ff368b6d82ac8.jpeg

I have a smaller cousin of your find, a Model SR-6E, purchased new in LA in 1980.  Has the same plug, though mine doesn't have the protective spring on the end that plugs into the machine. Also still works fine, though I tend to cook rice in the Instant Pot these days.

Just in time for Halloween/All Saints/Samhain/Dia de la Muertos comes this wok cauldron.  $20.    It was cleaned and smoothed, so now seasoning starts.   Thing's a beast, 7" deep and about 24" wide.  

 

I had been looking for a discada, but this is just as good.   Playing with fire on the tao burner.

 

Before and During pics.

The seasoning was finished with hoarded freezer pork fat that was rendered into chicharrons.   All this was an early morning patio endeavor, so I cracked a beer and stirred and sampled the chicharrons as the seasoning continued.
