Rare 1909 BING electric motor & lineshaft
« on: July 18, 2021, 08:24:34 am »
A rare BING 4-6V electric motor 13885/2 made of cast iron in 1909 arrived here as a reimport from Holland in remarkably good condition

[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

It was sold 112 years ago by the Lehrmittel-Verlag Artur Pfau from Rudolstadt in Thuringia.
I have never seen this one before ...

The 20cm high BING transmission system 9956/120 of the same time period came in spring this year with a parts bundle from a German auction house.

Except for the shaft, all parts including a wooden plate with a badge were available and only needed to be completed.

For its age, the engine is indeed in exceptional condition. The same goes for the transmission.

Congratulations on the acquisition.
