Found this in my dads garage , on a small oak base , looks like a motor with a coil field ? Was wondering if by chance someone knows what it is , thanks in advance.

Oops, pressed enter to fast. Meant looks like an old motor for science classes or something similar.

The original design for the electric palm sander? :-)

This motor sat on my shelf for a couple years and I didn't know for sure what it was or its value. On day I was looking around on ebay and found one somewhat like it, I was shocked at what it was going for. Later I needed to paint my 14 runabout so I thought a good way to finance it would be to sell the electric motor. I had people interested in it from all over the world but no one bid on it until the last 6 seconds 3 bids topping out at $4850.00. Had money for the paint job and the upholstery.

From the photos, it appears that the outer unit revolves around the inner coil unit. It looks as if the unit produces an electrical current.

Perhaps, it is part of an older hand-crank telephone device, requiring hand cranking to activate the telephone for a telephone call? As far as I know, most of such units required cranking of an inner armature within an outer series of horseshoe magnet coils. Placing one's fingers on the connecting points of such a device while turning the crank causes an electrical charge to run up one's arm. It is very discomforting, as the charge is quite strong. However, it is still fun to experience. Got to have some fun though, right?
