    An Oldie but a Goodie

    A friend of mine found this beauty on the third floor of an antique shop close to home. He couldn't get behind it to find a model or serial number but the shop still has the power and gas connected.

    Anybody recognize it? Any guess to the vintage?

    Yea, I'd guess 60s. I worked as a teen in the 70s in a couple of places that had newer versions of them.

    You could go on a service call to one of those and the compressor would be running and the end bell hot enough to burn your hand. No problem, just fix the the problem and the compressor was good for another 30 years

    Remember the one with three horizontal panels. Over time they did get lighter. The filter grill was held in with big thumb screws. Well I was replacing it and it fell right on my foot. Had to weigh over 50lbs. The thermostat knob as well as well as the selector switch were 18 karat plated gold and looked great.

    The design is pretty good. How can the compressor still run? Unbelievable...
