Currently working on the "Wheatstone Jambox, Bluetooth enabled"
Why is it called this?
The item is based on a Wheatstone Bridge, an antique electrical testor used by technicians 75 - 80 years ago. These testors were hand made of fine woods by skilled woodworking craftsmen before the electronic components were added.
I languished over the idea of gutting a piece of history, but decided that it's of no use to anyone in its current state. So, I photographed and documented the piece and submitted to an antique equipment museum website for posterity, then began the conversion...
Please check back soon for the completed project.
Per the website Grace's Guide:
"The [H. W. Sullivan] Company manufactured high precision electrical standards of inductance, capacitance and resistance, and instruments called a 'bridge' for accurately measuring these three components.
Sullivan's did virtually everything in-house, carpenters would make beautiful teak boxes to house instruments, a French polisher would add his finish, metal workers would cut and machine parts from steel, aluminium, copper, brass, phosphor bronze."
