That's interesting, Jim's article is dated 1912, so at least that gives us a rough date to go on. Looking at the links above the jury is still out on whether it could be a motor or dynamo.

Thanks Martin, I've asked him "are you 100% sure it is a motor, have you tested it to be sure ?" and have yet to receive a response. It does look like a dynamo to my untrained eye, it is a thing of...

I'll see what they want for 2 metres, if it makes my eyes water I will try eBay. I would also like to see if they stock any other useful bits and bobs.
