Sperry Searchlight Restoration, Part I

SPERRY 1 (43 K)


   John D. Atkin IV of Yates Center, Kansas, has sent in a pictorial update (as of June 2000) of his restoration of a 1941A Sperry searchlight with a 1942 GE generator. His ultimate goal, in addition to completing the basic restoration of the equipment itself, is to mount both on original trailers. Bookmark this page for future status reports from John (all photos courtesy J. D. Atkins).
