I don't know but I like it. It would look right at home in Dr. Frankenstein's Laboratory along with a HCCT.
I can't really see anything that advances the gear but if it was advanced one tooth every second or so it could be an electric fence charger.
Here is a factory kit for an ingenious fence charger using a T coil, a LeJay charger:
I don't know what it is either, but that looks like a gear from a telephone magneto.
A rudimentary stepper motor.
John are you going to make me look that up?
Your Right Steve, that is what it is. The mag. feeds the T coil.
Nope Herm, each click of the coil magnet advances the gear one notch. A stepper motor.
Maybe for $22, one could find out for sure.
It will only work or vibrate with an AC voltage applied, as the points are not functional.
