1950s Voltage Divider TS-89/AP
What is this weird and wonderful object? The actual answer is a 1950s Voltage Divider TS-89/AP electrical testing apparatus for calibrating radar! It would have been used in conjunction with an oscilloscope for testing the AN/APG-5; an S-Band Range Finding Pulse Radar of the type found in the B-17 (Flying Fortress) & B-24 USAF Aircraft.

This would make a fantastic display object for the man cave, office or hobby room! Made from solid brass with stainless steel screws and ceramic accents, this device was made in the U.S, by ‘Western Electric,’ New York, in the days when quality was not compromised by cost! Your own little piece of aviation history in the form of a B17 USAF Flying Fortress test kit on your desk or shelf.
It has been lovingly polished and cleaned ready for its new owner to care for. Extremely rare, this device would be a real conversation or museum piece! We are selling it as a display item only.
