Cool stuff!
I have quite a handful of those rotary switches, in fact, just pulled one last week from the basement of a home ready for demo.

I've enver seen anything like that porcelain transformer before. what was it used for? Door bell?

Ahhh very cool finds indeed I've only come across the twist switches once, I've got the older porcelain brother of that Bryant light socket, with a white twist handle...

An original Zinsco Magnetrip in the box.. I've yet to see one of those,... But I've got barrels of old ones

What is the transformer for??
