Default 1887 Chas. Heinel BiPolar Electric Motor

Picked this up recently at Coolspring out of the bed of a guys pickup truck, Very unusual and odd maker out of Wilmington, Delaware. This is not a "DUPE" and has a cast tag on it..

I believe they have medication to treat your two pole machine's bipolar disorder.

Curious they do not list speed, hp, amps and so on.

I have an small antique Crocker Wheeler that is 1/6 hp.

Thanks for posting this. Charles Heinel was a well-known machinist in Wilmington, and my 2x great-uncle. I've been researching him and other members of the Heinel family. He and his sons had several businesses including the manufacturing of electric motors. Their business location about this time was on the corner of Front & Market Sts. I've attached an entry from the Wilmington city directory from 1891.

There's an article I found in the Wilmington Evening Journal from Oct. 1897 saying they had been awarded a contract for a 15HP motor for the 3rd St. bridge for $450. That would be about $13K in today's dollars.
