"Your *what* hurts?"
is that a telegraph machine in the background? Nifty!
It's actually a late 1800s telegraph sounder, yes. In the picture, one can just barely see an electronics project box underneath it.That box has an RF circuit and power supply, along with a small AM radio antenna, that sets the telegraph sounder clattering when thunderstorms approach the house. In other words, it's a lightning detector! I couldn't just let it sit there doing nothing, you understand...
