Shamanic Engineering Laboratory: 1920’s Fischer Diathermy Machine

We’re very excited to have recently added a Fischer Diathermy Machine to the laboratory equipment here at Shamanic Engineering. It’s in pretty good condition, for being almost 100 years old. Mud wasps had taken up residence inside the case and built nests, fortunately they didn’t build anything in the electrical portions of the unit. The wood is in pretty rough condition, the screws in one of the spark gaps had failed and needed replaced, the meter needed a new fuse, a thick layer of dust needs to be cleaned off of all the coil surfaces, and it needs a new power cord. As you can see from the pictures, the machine is a hospital unit, complete with the stand and an assortment of accessories still in the drawer. The unit has not been powered up yet…more to come after the restoration is completed.
