A Test of Your Knowledge
« on: January 24, 2020, 01:32:52 PM »
I've never seen one of these before. It has a retro/steampunk look to it, appears to be used to heats water.
There are no markings anywhere except for the clamp on the side do-dad, which is for a company that makes clamps for the aerospace industry.
So is it for cooking eggs, an incubator for alien life forms, or what?
It's got to have some value, well-made and shiny!

After entering a picture, you should see "More Attachments". Attach others there.

Not real old since the cord has a ground on it. That being said, I. have no clue what it was used for.

I'll go with the world's most gizmotic hard-boiled egg maker, although the incubator for egg-laying aliens works too.

I've sold a few home water distillers popular in areas with really bad water. Seems kinda like one of those? Some utilize a cold water coil to help with condensing the steam.
