Default Fullwood Milking Parts

Hi,
I have this Fullwood milking stuff as shown in the picture.
Can anyone identify what it is, how modern it is and if it's worth anything (apart from the aluminium and stainless content).
Also if it's actually any use at all .....
Thanks for any help,
Phillip

It looks like part of a pipeline milking system from a milking parlour, to me.

A cow would be connected to the top of the glass jar (the jar should have graduations to show how much milk has been collected).
When the cow had been milked, the valve at the 'bottom right' would be opened (by vacuum) and the milk would then go through the pipeline, to the bulk storage tank.
Then the cow would be moved out and the next cow connected up.
There would have been a number of these units in a milking parlour.

You could possibly adapt it for some sort of display. Or, buy a cow.

I collect Fullwood dairy 'stuff' and have many of the service books, manuals etc so can check later for an approximate date Phillip. I would guess at sixties/seventies.

THanks both of you.

The glass jar is not graduated. Is is simply marked "Fullwood" on one side an "Pyrex" on the other.

The blue back board is marked "Circulation Timer" if that helps.

I'm begining to suspect it's just junk........

There is a schematic drawing in the 1982 parts manual but you can't really tell if it is the same model. Although I collect mostly Fullwood and Gascoigne items the main problem with those more modern items is the glass portion, they don't travel well (were never meant to!) and are not easily displayed to advantage, unlike the rest of the system between animal and churn. This is easily displayed with a nice s/engine chugging away powering it all as mine, hopefully, will be doing this weekend in the Yesterdays Dairy section at Masham Steam rally!

Bin it Phillip!

Pete.

Although I'm not sure having the words "doowlluF" and "xeryP" projected on your living room wall is a good idea.
