I have some electrical equipement, what is it and is it worth anything?
 
Hey guys never posted here, but it looks like there is TONS of information. Glad I found yall. I recently bought some items that were in foreclosure and I have no idea what they are. I didn't buy this stuff directly they were part of a very large bundle of merchandise. Anywho, I'm just curious what they are all about and if they are worth anything. (P.S. I'm in no way shape or form an electrician). Thanks in advance!

It's a control panel for some sort of 3 phase power supply.

Judging by the serial number of "3", it's a highly specialized piece of equipment.

It's good for parts... or maybe sell it to someone looking for a movie prop. It's not worth much.

If you put power to it, and you travel back in time, look me up and warn me about Debbie..... and Karen.

WAG: Power supply calibration for old Unisys computers.

From the looks of it must be gear from the 70's, based in the couple of LEDs and no digital displays. Note the very low serial number. If it is a field engineer tool, I suspect these things were built in very low numbers and probably no two of them where identical. So it is a very unique, limited edition piece of equipment worth about nothing.

Don't take it apart. That would be stupid. Put it on Ebay. There is someone out there that probably would buy it in a heartbeat. You don't know what it is. Someone else will.

hey johnny, if you do a doctor's or chiropractor's office and can get me a good deal on a 70c electro acuscope, let me know, 'k?
80 models may be acceptable if not too old. ideal would be an electro acuscope/myopulse combo unit. tnkx!
if anyone else knows of any, feel free to PM me!

I responded from my phone earlier in the middle of some heavy work. My plan is to put it on ebay, I am trying to target a buying crowd. It was a poor choice of words on my part, and now that I re-read it I was making no sense. :laughing:

Post a photo of the insides. Magnetic components cost big bucks.

Can you link me to some information on magnetic components? I did a quick google search, is that the name of the company?

Anyways, after battling unreachable screws for the last 45 minutes I finally got the back exposed.


It looks almost like a drawer with no sides. This picture is of the part that none of the switches, jacks, dials touch.

These next pictures are where the dials etc connect:

This one says 8811 Grayhill La Grange, Illinois on it.

I think the movie prop idea is the best way to go. I'm not seeing anything valuable in there parts wise. Consider yourself lucky if you cover shipping on that boat anchor.
