Re: An old Tesla coil system


Neat find!!!!!

Today I contacted a friend that will try to get me a 1905 Westinghouse, (or
slightly older), polyphase motor.  The motor lists Tesla's patents. It was
installed in 1905 on the elevator in the Emery Theater in Cincinnati. It is
a true
3 phase motor and looks just like the Tesla polyphase motor patent drawings. I
will try to get some pics scanned for all to see.
