See my previous message on this topic.
I viewed the photos, and the photo of the unit in the patient examination
room looks a lot like the design of the fluoroscope I acquired in the early
60's. It suspect it might make a highly sought after museum piece.
The control unit has some nice meters, and the "100 step autotransformer"
would make an excellent variable-voltage unit for the plate transformer for
a 2 kw-plus transmitter or amplifier. If it's anything like I remember from
mine, its voltage regulation is far superior to that of a large variac.
This unit is much higher power and heavier-duty than the one I had.
I still regret getting rid of the autotransformer, but I was glad to see the
rest of the x-ray machine go.
