Found this with some of my timers.
Neat! There is a dedicated accessory timer thread on the MTFCI forum, this would be a great addition if you are so inclined.
I have a few Milwaukee timers. But they are all standard roller type Milwaukee timers, nothing like that.
Thank you for sharing that here as well.
Nice! I have about 30+ different timers in my little collection,but none like that.
Does it fit a Model T? It looks like it drives with a keyed shaft.(or I suppose the head of the pin on a Model T camshaft.
If it was made to use on a T there must have been some type of key that fit in the hole in the camshaft. It probably would have come with the timer when it was purchased. Just an opinion.
And if there was its probably long gone since it was such a small part.
Nothing like taking a simple working design and complicating the heck out of it.
That bronze one is 'Improved' timer, Milwaukee made several styles of timers.
Have that and others in my collection, and a standard type Milwaukee with the case made of Bakelite! Mfg.'s were always looking for the perfect timer..... As if the T owner wanted a perfect car !!
I also have several of the Bakelite ones.
As far as timers designs that stood the test of time, looks like it was the original roller style, the New Day, and the Anderson.
If they are being made as reproductions that must be the test.
And of course variations of the above!
