Assembling a Snook Interrupterless
Featured Collector Dr. Daniel Cuscela
Checking oil...first step is to check if the transformer is
functional. That thing weighs 500 pounds at least!
An inch or so low
Loose fitting screw to cover oil fill hole
Running from a variac powered by 110V only.
First gap was ca. 1"
These buckets helped with the lifting - made a nice pause between ground
and a huge case!
Look at this wooden shaft. I wonder if its Sitka like the Model 13M?
Rectifier feed thru insulator
Full wave rectifier, beautiful!!!!!!!!
The top section. This thing is huge! Taller than the car!
Historic Photo, Snook, Victor Filament Transformer, Grizzy's generous
Victor Controller (formerly Bill Wysock's!, that thing
has a good 10,000 miles under its belt!), and behind the fabulous Victor
Wantz. Horray for Homer Snook and Julius Wantz.
I bet Frank H Swett, VP at Victor, knew his way around these machines!
Two Mcintosh Polysines. Neither machine has the correct meter, but
interesting to see minor variations.
