This is a huge 12 General Electric Electrical Rheostat. Basically, it is a heavy duty industrial dimmer switch. It was salvaged from a decommissioned power plant years ago.
The unit is complete and would probably still function in its original application. Parts on this rheostat are intact and all there. The frame and legs are cast iron with a slate center insulator. The round contacts are copper.
All cleaned up, this gem would be pretty impressive. Consider this for your collection or next steampunk project! You will receive the item shown.
