Can anyone identify this old light switch?.

[Linked Image]

It would have been an outdoor switch judging by it's construction and was more than likely designed to connect to steel conduit.
Any ideas?.

Australian made Federal Rowco rotary switch perhaps? Normally 10A @ 240V AC only rating, a good guage of its age would be a 3/4" conduit entry instead of a 20mm one.

This switch is certainly foreign.

I have a look by one of our subs, for the outside lights.
They look similar, heavy duty for steel conduit.


The product of rotation, excitation and flux produces electricty.
