Description Magneto electric machine used to ease nervous disorders by applying electric energy. The machine is held in a wooden box. The machine is made from brass with a large steel magnet and blue velvet covers on the magneto. There are two brass cylinder handles with electric cables that plug into the box. The current is generated by winding the handle on the outside of the box, this spins the magnetos which generate a current against the large magnet. This is then passed through the external wire to the paitent who holds the brass cylinder handles.
The instructions for use are printed on a green lable on the inside of the box lid.
Manufactured by William Skidmore, Cemetery Road, Sheffield.
