Seller: bcolins (387) 100%, Location: San Antonio, Texas, Ships to: US, Item: 273997530559 This is an antique Quack Medicine device from the early 1900s. There were originally two wired electrodes for the user or users to hold on to while the machine delivered the supposed therapeutic electrical pulses. It is missing the left side larger control knob and the small centrally mounted lower knob similar to the one above it...I had planned on having replicas made by 3D printing copies of the remaining knobs, and never got around to it. It also no longer has an electrical cord as we did not want to risk someone plugging it in and then being injured. The cabinet appears to be Mahogany or possibly Walnut, with a solid brass handle on the top and a brass plate with the name of the device and manufacturer. Push button power switch with mother of pearl inset. Instructions are on the inside of the lid and read as follows: Left hand dial should always be set at 40Right hand dial should always be set at 58Middle dial should always be set so that wire is about 2" from small screen In case you should want to increase strength of the machine when treating 6 or 8 people at the same time, revolve middle knob so that wire comes closer to screen, the nearer you get to the screen, the stronger the energy, but wire should never be so close as to spark. Adjust your vibrator as low as possible and have it run steadily. If you adjust vibrator too closely, over time you are likely to overheat the coils and burn them out. when vibrator is adjusted properly, the coils will never heat up. Condition: Some parts Including two knobs, the power cord and hand grips are missing, otherwise in good condition., Maker: Dr. H.M. Farham, Detroit, MI
