Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Need help in identying this item

I found, in my 150 year old barn, a wooden case with two heavily corded wires. There is a thumb knob on the top and a metal plate on the side which reads "Eastern Electric Company", Cleveland, Ohio..Patent appl'd For No. 3074.I will submit pictures and would really appreciate any information you might have on the piece. I have been told that it had something to do with the Model T.

Try to get the file size on the pics to just under 194K for best results. :-)

Sounds like a coil used with a hotshot battery to charge a cattle wire fence.

They have a lot of patents, but I think this is it

The patent is from 1950. I think the unit looks much older?

I like the lampholder plug :-)
