I have never used one or seen one.

My guess is that is made for an old in floor duct system like Walker duct.

Is that what it is Roger?

I'd agree it looks like a floor monument, but I've sure never seen one like this! Is it old?

Bob, I don't know. They were mounted on 3/4" ridgid stub ups under tables, these stubs terminated in receptacles in adjacent walls.

Bill, LOL I wasn't going to bring that up.

Electure, I'm not sure, it came out of a university renovation project. The building (part of which was a lab area) was probably 50 - 60 years old but the devices are grounded type and parts of the building had been renovated in the last 20 - 30 years.

Roger,

I wonder if one-up and one-down was done purposely.

From the first pictures posted I could tell the ground was up in the top picture and down in the second picture. Funny what details we notice, eh?
