    Regulator bench setting machine

    I am sure there is a technical name for the machine. Please let me know what it was / is. In the day they used to make a bench machine that you could put a regulator on, off of the car, and set the output etc. My generator starter guy, who does incredible work, does not have one of these as they are long obsolete. Who may have one? I need to get a regulator setup for my car.
  2. That serial number falls right in the GE Dictator type 2 range. It is a GE six.

    How is this for size?

    Thanks for the correction. The car was labeled as Babcock by the Jefferson County Historical Association. i see now a plate on the firewall clearly says Stearns. They had another roadster labeled as Babcock. When I blew up the picture it is a Baker Electric. I wonder, were both these cars bodies made by Babcock? They made bodies for a lot of makes.

    I believe this may be the same car as the first photo but in another location.

    Studebaker Dealer Watertown

    The sign on the side of the building indicates he sold Grey automobiles as well.
  8. I ran across this image of the Watertown, NY Studebaker dealership from 1918 Thought it might interest some of you. The car in front is a Studebaker but what are the ones on the right?

    Early 30's Cars

    I ran across this winter scene of early thirties cars trucks and buses. How many can you identify? Given the time of year thought the picture appropriate.

    I noticed that there is not much information on here about the Babcock car of Watertown, NY so I thought I'd post this picture from a 1976 newspaper. The fine print says it is a 1910 Model 30. The picture is taken in front of the company offices.

    Aluminum Transmission parts

    If it is a light six, then 1920 to 1924.

    Aluminum Transmission parts

    It looks very much like the transmission in a studebaker light six. It could also be for the big and special six. I think the bigger cars used a larger version same setup.

    Isenglass (Eisenglass?) in early brass cars

    As a kid I used to play in an old eisenglass pit mine. My understanding was that the large sheets of mica were used to make stove windows. And yes there were boulders of mica in the pit. We used to have competitions to see who could peel off the largest sheets. I don't think we ever got larger than 12 by 12 in all our attempts.
