Hello all ! I recently purchased what I believe is a Sterling M10. (or M5?)
It has 16 ports on each end. I have heard this siren many times as it was on the Fire and Police station up the street here, but it has not been operated for about 2 years since they moved into new facilities. It was quite a chore getting this old heavy thing down from an enclosed 45' tower that was attached to the building! It had been there since the 1960's and I was told it was an old used unit when it was put up then. The motor looks as if something in the 1940's or earlier.
I know very little about these, but am learning. The name tag on the motor is hard to read, but it does show that it is 110/220volt and I believe it says 3000 which I think is the RPM. I do know it was operated on 220v at the old station.
Like I said, it does work, and the end caps are in great shape with the screens, but it does not have the motor shield and guards that wrap around the cages on the top.
I guess my question is, does anyone have any info on these Sterlings like an old manual or sales data, and maybe a clue where I could possibly come across the guards for it?
I have pics of it, but have not figured out how to post them on here yet!
