Strange Timer: $20.00. When I first glanced at this timer in the bottom of a box I thought "GOOD A NEW DAY". But when I pulled it out it was a timer I had never seen before. It has 4 rods sticking out of the inside that are spring pressed. Were a normal roller goes it has a flat disk with round contacts. The disk is set up to mount on the end of the cam shaft just like a regular roller and go in circles. Both the body and the disk have the trade mark SPAD Made in the USA. Please include $9.15 shipping.

Dave...stupid question here...any wear on the brushes, or does the thing seem to be fairly new?
Really kinda interested in it.

Tim, I am going to try and post a picture. The flat round disk goes has a 1/2 flat spot that does show some wear, you can feel it with your finger when you rub it over the Disk. You can see a square white spot above in the disk in the picture.

The picture above is the opposite side of the disk. Those spots do not show any wear. There are four small dots also that are sunk way in.
Below is a picture (I hope) of the other side of the disk. The shiny spot at the top of the disk is the spot I was saying you can feel some wear if you rub you finger across it.

You will have to drag the picture to the left to see the contact spot in the disk.

Tim; The picture makes it look like the contact spot has a deep dish, it doesn't. I didn't think there was a dish until I rubbed my finger across it.
