    I WANT !!

    They had me at finding out it could provide inverse reactive current for my unilateral phase detractor. Pure gravy that it will also automatically synchronize my cardinal graham meter!

    Only problem is there's a shortage of girdle springs.
    The electro-encabulator performs no useful function whatsoever except as a great night light when the filament is lit. Nice, soft glow.  Retired Fluke engineer who's a neighbour of mine designed and built it, and presented it to me as wedding/birthday present. David has created the Wallace Museum of Obsolete Technology and Thermionic Valves. That's a 450xxxtube.
    Here's the original on the turbo-encabulator.

    I don't know what that tube thingee is in the original post,

    but I'm pretty sure, the turbo encabulator in the diagram, stage right of the august presenter above,

    is clearly the prototype of the hydramatic 4L80 (not the electronically controlled one, it has a E suffix) encabulator

    present in my old 4 wheel drive Chevy Suburban.

    It's amazing how these technological miracles become so quickly adapted to common use.

    And for the record, I have personally disassembled and replaced the Dingle Arm in mine.

    Don't try this at home kids.  

    Cool
