Primary Interest:
Metal Detecting
Today’s Metal detecting outing-history lesson was brought to you by Ford K-W magneto Ignition system. Just the contact point though lol. I have found one other of these before but it did not have any Pat. Date or trade Mark like this one so my research taught me what these actually looked like on the magneto.
Interesting read and historical lesson.
Patented April 7th 1914.
It is not a reale but a great detecting day for me.
