Found a Thermogal, what are you?
Thermogal? What is that?
After getting into my car after work one night, I noticed this besides one the rubbish bins. After having a closer look, I still had no idea what it was but the case looked like it could be use for something. So into the car it went.
After a short stint of googling, the closest I could find was that it was a device used by professional electrologists. (image in case it’s removed from the site)
Wikipedia informed me that it kills/removes hair and/or stops its growth. At this point, it was clear it was no use to me.
So let’s see Whats inside
I found a few date codes on parts in the late 70s but it appears it was last checked in ’86. Only really having a few useful (safe) parts inside, most of the internals ended up where it was destined to go in the first place… the landfill.
What I ended up with
- Nice weighty test equipment style case
- 3 240v transformers, 1 unknown output, 2 @ 10v
- The 2 front panel meters
- The switches were dead, but the pots looked ok.
- Old style LED holders
- And the usual collection of random fine nuts and bolts,
Now what to do with the case…
