<< It seems that many instruments with any type of chart recorder get

Hi Doug and Bob,

I checked the picture and it is definitely an Esterline Angus strip chart 
recorder. I once used one like it to record the output of a solar flare 
detector running at 3/4 inch/hr. It could also be used to record the output 
of a magnetometer or similar device. You can probably get chart paper for it 
from "Graphic Controls" which I believe is in Rochester, NY. I will not be 
bidding on it because I already have one. If you have a use for a strip chart 
recorder and can get this one cheap it should be a pretty good deal.
