Carlisle & Finch
No 27 10 Volt Electric Bipolar Dynamo The tag or maker id info on this early and interesting
open frame exposed coil electric dynamo is at the top. The plate reads
"NO. 27 DYNAMO ~ 10 VOLTS ~ SPEED 1200 ~ THE CARLISLE & FINCH CO. CINCINNATI,
O.". The base is cast iron. The brass drip oilers & connecting terminals are present and the motor
runs. Overall it measures 10'' in length by 5 1/4''
wide and stands 6 1/2'' at its tallest point. Super nice
Small Franklin Bipolar Electric Motor
This small Franklin toy size battery powered electric motor runs. It is built on the
same frame and principle as the small toy Bipolar Edison Motor one sees from time to
time. It have been suggested that they were sold or
given away at one of the expos or fairs around the country that took
place after the introduction by Edison of his light bulbs and full size motors / dynamos.
You actually see more of the Edison branded motor than you do the Franklin.
This tiny motor stands just under 4" tall and has a great look with its
double column exposed windings. It will
display nicely and will be a nice addition to the antique electric, motor,
Americana, or other collection.
Electrical Mfg. Co. Apple Igniter Here is a very nice
looking Apple Igniter Dynamo made by the Dayton Electric Co.
of Dayton Ohio.
Originally meant to be driven off an old gas engine flywheel
and used to make power for the ignition system. About 10-3/4″ long, 5-3/4″ wide, 5-3/4 tall. No bearing wear can be felt. Nice!!
F. Sturtevant Co. 1/8 Horsepower Electric Motor
A nice looking Pancake style electric motor that dates from near the turn of
the century. The founder of the company hailed from Maine, but this is
marked Boston Mass where the company was formed. The tag calls it off as being 104 volts and 1200
RPM. There is a Sturtevant history website
that describes the history and more Nice!!
Electric Co. Lundell Motor
This is an odd motor. The tag says 25 in the HP window. 1/4
horse ? surely not 25 horses. In the volt window it is stamped 500.
The RPM is 1600. It weighs a good 50 lbs. Different & Nice.
