    Bill,

    Be interesting to see what you find. I will not risk myself in the shed for now.

    I have somewhere some original Kriegsmarine paperwork on these instruments and I thought I remembered the revs as several thousand. It is a fairly heavy rotor so maybe that is what keeps it going long enough to climb a ladder. As someone mentioned, what happens if the rotor hits the casing? I only spun mine up a few times and then it was sitting on a stand. It would take a sturdy Matelot to hold one of thos things.
