    Default Antique gas machine

    I originally posted this in lighting and electrical, but that may not have been the most appropriate. I have in the basement of my georgeous 100-year-old home (among other cool things) a "20 Light Combination Gas Machine". Can anyone help with a reference for what this thing might do? It looks like it works in tandem with the "30 Light Combination Mixing Regulator" sitting next to it. Also, might someone appreciate having this for a correctly remodeled Victorian? I've attached a picture. Thanks -- Russ
