Thanks Aimless, I was hoping some of our vets would recognize these things. Yes, it is an old bedsheet and its not mine. I'll go and get the stuff off the tags now. Thanks again for the feedback. MM419

I'm working on getting the photos of the labels uploaded now. I had a couple of M38A1's and this stuff was included in the "deal". One was a 1952 and the other was a 1954. Give me a few minutes, thanks.

Generator and regulator assm. to supply power what looks like a convertor or an power invertor panel for accessory like maybe a radio truck or some other type of vehicle. Maybe radar or weapows contol system. The tags pretty much says it all Sorry could help. Hell I am going back to bed

Thanks u-baddog, I just need to narrow it down to what type of vehicle it goes with now. I want to know exactly what it is so I can list it properly. Its value would be nice too. Thanks for the input. MM419

What you may have there is a generator, regulator and inverter to make 28volts DC and some sort of 115 volts ac, if it makes 115volts, three phase 400 hz or some other similar form of 115 volts it may be for powering aircraft radios on a truck( usually a 1/4 ton[jeep]) or something similar. Set-ups like this were common from the 50's till the 70's . I was in a combat communications unit that had something similar to power radios for aircraft controllers. It was old as hell when I saw it in the late 80's. Does the big connector have about 7 pins??

It's either a sno-cone machine or a cappucino maker.

I think its one of the prototype FluxCapacitors from project

Is that a Flux Capacitor???

Thanks lonegunman, yes one of the large plugs is a 7 pin.

New game! TWENTY QUESTIONS! So far we have limited it to a range from refrigerator to radar set.

It's obviously a US metallic Rectiver, to rectivy metallic stuff. Or it's a fridge.

It appears to be rusty and corroded.[BD] Put the parts in a large bucket, add cement and attach a strong rope or chain and you will have a fine boat anchor.

Thanks everyone, I'm beginning to realize that "it" is JUNK. Probably one hour after I make a boat anchor out of it, it will be worth something to someone, somewhere. See you in the funny papers guys. Top of the evening to all. MM419
