Tiny magneto. Possible patent model?
« on: October 15, 2019, 11:42:32 PM »
This came with another purchase. It is a very small magneto.I have it next to a transmitter cup for reference to its size. On the wood base, it is marked "PAT APR. 27 '97". Could this be a patent model? It appears to be functional although I have not tried it.
