General Electric Synchronous Timer

Title

General Electric Synchronous Timer

Description

This General Electric timing device is powered by a Warren Telechron Co. synchronous motor. Considering GE’s use of a Telechron motor, this timer approximately dates back to the 1930s, give or take a few years. The timer sits in an oak box, complete with an oak lid and a brass latch on the front. On the inside of the lid, there is a diagram of the timer’s circuits along with operating instructions.
