I found this gem at the CBA smithing conference this weekend! Was left outside for a few years, but looks to be in working order. I found a few articles about it, but could use some more insight before we fire it up. Hoping to have it ready for the May Day Party this weekend!

Settings on theĀ  Hogan High frequency apparatus made by McIntosh Electrical Corporation include: Tesla coil, d’Arsonval Solenoid, and Oudin resonator.

It supposedly cures insomnia, boils, indigestion, and erectile disfunction among other things.

I found one at a school for eletronics in dallas, texas
I was a Tesla Coil. But the test I did showed me it was just an ark welder.

I am attempting to start a small antique electrical collection, is the Hogan-Pullwit cabinet forsale, or any other old electrical machines? if so, please email me.

I have had an oportunity to view the pages showing the restoration of the Hogan-Pullwitt machine, I understand why you wouldn’t part with it. It is a vision!
Allow me to ask you both you(admin) and anyone else who reads this a question: are electrical antiques like this common in your area? as for here (michigan) I have not seen so much as a broken violet ray.
