Restored this one for the local fire station. They bought it new when the station went up in 1927. It's a United Electric MFG; before they were bought out by Bersted and turned to junk. Man this thing is built TOUGH. Especially for an el-cheapo of it's time. Had to machine new oilers, bearings, and a new rotor shaft. Rewound the stator coils too. It oughta' last them another 80 years now, eh? It was a real wreck.. had been in their shed for awhile.
