I have a Servwell Magneto Charger in original condition. I have sold all my Model T's.

Is there any interest in this item?

Thank you,
Kevin

I can add a picture shortly. I have not taken any yet.

It is all there and I have used it a few years ago.

What kind of price do they bring?

Thanks,
Kevin

Kevin, don't know what the real value would be but copper is high. A few years back I was going to build a new magnet charger and the copper alone was over 200 bucks. Put it on ebay and see what happens, you might be surprised. KGB

The last two home made ones I just looked on ebay were over 150 each. They had fairly small coils and were battery powered. I have been pricing magnet wire to build one, yikes!

mark here's the one I ended up building from four old metal halide light transformers(free) and directions from Gingery's book. Ended up with about 40 bucks including the book. KGB

Kevin says it is a "Magneto" charger. not a "magnet" charger. Pictures would really help .... My magneto charger has very little copper in it.

Kevin, is the Servwell Magneto Charger something like the one in Keith'e picture? Or is it one of the hand held ones to use while the magnets are on the flywheel in the car?

I couldn't find a picture of the device itself but found this ad from 1925.

It mentions "without loosening a bolt or nut".

Must be like a battery charger or batteries in series like you would use on an in car recharge attempt.
