1900 Carlisle & Finch Bipolar Utility Motor with Wide Pulley
Early 1900's Carlisle & Finch Bipolar Utility Motor. Really Neat Cast Iron Motor We Believe To Have Been Manufactured By The Carlisle Finch Co. With regard to C&F, the company began in July of 1893 and was originally a repair shop for electric motors. Morton Carlisle and Robert S. Finch purchased it from General Electric and started operating on January 1, 1894 and C&F was incorporated in 1897 as a manufacturing company. The early job orders were for fixing electrical motors for GE and other customers. But in 1896 they decided to try making a product, an electric novelty - a small number one trolley. This Motor Is In Excellent Condition, May Have Been Cleaned And Some Minor Restoration In The Past. Motor Runs Excellent As Seen In The Video Under Product Videos.
