Here is one I owned back before digital cameras were around. It came with a very large black slate switchboard complete with all gauges etc. My very first quality sideshaft ( about a 3 HP Hamilton) came from the same barn. In those days new things came along about every week so both were traded off for new toys. Fred

The first photo is one that I have had for awhile. The second photo I'm not sure of the maker as it has no tag but resembles TH.

There is a large one at the NEWSM.org connected to an Armington-Sims steam engine. I can take some pictures of it the next time I visit.

If anyone is aware of possibly a original condition one forsale I sure would appreciate a heads up about it. I really like the looks of the ARC Lighting ones too. Was lucky to find several really nice Biplor motors at Coolspring last week..
