Rare Antique Victor Electric Cautery Motor Machine, Early Museum Medical Device:
Antique Cautery Motor Medical Device as shown in the photos.Made by the Victor Corporation, Chicago, Illinois, and intended for use in hospitals and doctor's office.This machine dates from just after 1900. The motor has exposed, external brushes, as well as fully exposed 110 volt thumb-screw connectors, attaching the cord.The machine is made of cast iron and is very heavy weighing over 27 pounds.There are a few nicks and scratches in the paint butIt is all original, very well preserved and in great shape for being over 100 years old.The cloth insulated cord and heavy brass plug are intact but out of caution I have not tried to operate it, but judging by it's appearance would wager it still functions.Of course this antique device is for display purposes only and not intended for use.The voltage adjuster slide lock down knob on the base of the machine is missing as can be seen in the photos.Thanks for looking !Buyers Please Note:New Members, Members with a Zero (0) response score, a history of Non Payment or no recent transactions must contact the seller before offerding or your offer will be canceled.

In an effort to keep your cost as low as possible I usually ship by USPS Standard Post which is the least expensive shipping method for domestic (U.S.) buyers. I always calculate actual shipping cost, never charging for packaging or handling and in almost all instances I will have your purchase in the mail on its way to you within 24 hours of receiving payment, by the Postal Services schedule it will usually take 8 to 10 days for you to receive your item using Standard Post, so please keep in mind if you wish to receive your item sooner I also offer USPS Priority Mail shipping which is slightly more expensive but usually only takes 3-4 business days to arrive.
As of 1/17/2016 the US Postal Service initiated new higher shipping rates as well as doing away with some online purchase discounts.These new shipping rates are reflected in the calculated shipping cost of all items that are sold and are in no way under the sellers control.
