Ecko Power Unit Top View
This is an Ekco Power Supply unit for radio's.
It is believed to date from around 1932.
It has had a switch change and the mains cable taped up recently.Rather surprisingly when powered it worked, dc voltages were availiable from the output sockets and no sign of overheating.
More on this unit later.
