The vendor at the Sandwich Antique Show says it works, and offered to plug it in for me.
 
There is a slight chance I might buy it in the future, as a conversation piece, so I took his card.
 
He probably lives 15-20 minutes away from me.

Haha when I was winding armatures I used one of those many a time. Like that arm in the pic and much much larger.
