I assume it is mostly selenium rectifiers, with a lump of iron in a corner.

What can you do with one big volt?

Cheers!

Drive a metal foil as a heater perhaps? Testing high current equipment? There'll be various labs round the world for which this is just the ticket for their next experimental set-up...


Some computer CPU's would run nicely from that come to think of it

Why still speculating? The logo says what it is.

Maybe make sure it does not have selenium rectifiers. Having one of those start gassing is sort of bad. I had an old Wurlitzer organ that started smelling bad and I knew it was a low voltage selenium rectifier. It was used to actuate the stops. Replaced that sucker quick.
