You are bidding on a vintage (date unknown) WM Welch Scientific Co (Chicago, IL) piece of lab equipment. I believe it to be some sort of filter, but cannot be sure just what it was used for. Came from local school auction. Quite old. Looks great, but a bit dusty as you can see. Mostly cast iron and the rods in the center I believe are lead. Stands about 16" tall. Quite heavy~tfore, the high shipping fee. However, it shipping is significantly less, I will refund the difference. I will be listing several lots of this type antique equipment this week~take a look!*Note: Another ebayer had this to say regarding this item: "I'm taking a guess on this item - but I do 'feel' its something electrical - perhaps an induction coil or even a Lenz-type (jumping coils) device?" He is a collector of old physics lab equipment, so take it for what it's worth.
