Click on the photo for additional views of this vintage wind gauge anemometer.
This is an vintage maritime wind gauge anemometer with a nautical propeller that was salvaged from a vessel destined to be cut up for scrap at one of the shipbreaking yards. The propeller for sale is aluminum, the tail cone is fiber, and most of the rest of the unit is brass. The aluminum propeller has four blades and measures 13 3/4 inches tip to tip. From the ground to the top of the tail this wind gauge anemometer measures 30 1/2 inches tall. From the front tip to the back of the tail it measures 28 inches. The propeller turns with some resistance. The unit only spins about 30 degrees on the mount pipe. This antique wind gauge anemometer weighs about 26 pounds.
By definition, a windmill anemometer is similar to its namesake, the windmill, in that it must be parallel to the direction of the wind in order to work properly. A wind vane, attached to the tail of the anemometer, is pushed around until the propeller is facing into the wind. The wind then turns the propeller, which rotates a mechanism that calculates the wind speed.
We have not determined if this wind gauge anemometer works or not, but regardless, it will make a unique display item in your home or outside in your yard or garden area.

*****LOCAL PICK UP ONLY ON THIS ITEM****
This Fresnel lighthouse lens is a rare find, and it is unlikely you will find another one like it for sale! This is a single panel Fresnel lighthouse lens from an unknown Great Lakes lighthouse. It was made in 1933 by American Gas Accumulator Company in Elizabeth New Jersey. The Serial Number is #501. The glass was supplied by supplied by BBT – France.
This antiques maritime item measures just over 36 inches tall and about 21 inches wide. The brass housing and the glass weigh just over 140 pounds. This Fresnel lighthouse lens is being sold in as found condition and is not considered to be in mint condition. Some of the glass prisms have notable chips and other damage. All of the prisms are glass and none are made of the replacement acrylic material used in modern time to restore the prisms. It is clear that some of the white compound normally found to support the glass position in the brass frame has been replaced with some sort of clear silicone caulk. I was told the center glass is not original to the lens, but may have been installed to make a better display at some point.
This Fresnel lighthouse lens is a very historical piece and I will not ship, pack, or crate it. We ask that the new owner pick up and transport from our Pauline, South Carolina warehouse. If you choose to hire a professional moving company, you accept full responsibility of the mover you select.
