Steam powered testing device designed by Bernard Maets, a little known but very prolific inventor of the 19th century.
Type and Function:
This unit provides a means for testing an almost limitless list of parameters in the hands of a trained technician. Bernard need such devices for use in a variaty of his activities from steam power to aether detection, from hydrogen leak detection to time parameter assessment and much more.
The three keys are operated individually or in sets. Unfortunately, the directions for the unit have not been found. The exact operation of the keys is not known. Each unit is basically the same and yet unique. It is not known if they are indeed the same or meant for making different measurements. More experimentation is needed.
These models where found in the Wisconsin shop of Bernard Maets. Further research is on going.
This object has been recovered, studied and restored by Ed Kidera.
