condition: good
From the Scene of the Grime Department:

One of many upcoming listings for some of my antique "Steam Punky" electric and electro-mechanical thingamadoobob's I am clearing out. Scary thing is I know what this is and what it is for, given I'm an old Electrical Engineer, I mean really old. This is a resistive decade box in its original wood case with its original Shellac finish and Bakelite kanobbies. Made by Thomas Levering, and Co. I was going to go Steampunk on a Kitchen rebuild for my Victorian but I went another route. Except for the fading of the Bakelite, there are no cracks and everything turns if you like turning random knobs and playing B-17 bomber pilot. Would look good on a shelf with your other antique test or lab equipment, and now you can tell your guests what it is.

Message me through the CL relay to come have a looks.

Randy
