  Hand-Crank Generator

Large, heavy generator.

Notes: Old & heavy. Make sure the small wheel is tight against the belt before turning the handle. An arrow on the large gear near the handle indicates the direction of rotation. Two binding posts allow you to attach an electrical accessory. A small bulb holder is also attached, presumably so that it can be illuminated by turning the crank.

LDL at front.
