For sale from the estate of an old timer:

NEW spool of vintage # 28 magnet wire.  Double
cotton, 1/4 pound spool. On the original wooden spool,
with wrapper around it saying "Birnbach Magnet Wire".
I would guess 1930's vintage, but that is a guess.
This looks like it just came off of the shelf.  $ 10

Niehoff Model T-2 DC voltmeter.  Meter movement
itself says "C E Niehoff Co., Chicago, USA"
Three scales -- 5 V, 10 V, and 25 V.  In nice bakelite
case.  Accepts standard banana plug leads.
Again, I would guess 1930's vintage.  This one looks
very close to new.  No scratches that I can find, although
a very small amount of dust is evident.  $ 30

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
