Rare Kit For Adjusting Signal & Homing Light - Portsmouth Navy Yard - With Case For Sale
KIT FOR ADJUSTING SIGNAL AND HOMING LIGHT
Acquired at an estate sale in a sturdy
and seasoned wood box is a “Kit for Adjusting Signal and Homing Light”
manufactured by the Portsmouth Navy Yard, Portsmouth, N.H. So what exactly is it? I am not sure. The box and device looked interesting so I
bought it. My research has not turned up
much. The most I know about this item is
that the Portsmouth Navy Yard is still functioning. The box measures 8 ½ inches by 8 ½ inches by
3 inches. There is a solid canvass strap
on the box. The hinges appear to be
original to the box and are very solid. The
latch is rust and a bit tough to move at time.
Inside under the lid are two clips as if something should be – maybe the
instruction manual? Inside the base of
the box sits a round metal instrument (measures about 7 ½ inches in diameter)
with some corrosion (clearly this has been used around water) with two pegs on
the bottom of it that rest in the box, two pegs on top with two bubble levels
and two metal plaques – one reads “LEVEL” and I can’t make out the other
one. There are felt like disc or washers
on two pegs in the box. There is also
another device in the box labeled “Tilting Block”, “This side for roll direction”,
“This side for pitch direction” and S6405-73297-8” So, if you know what this is or have any info
on it please send me a note. Thank you!
