Looks like an old fashion readiostat or selector switch , one controls amps and RPM's and other ,selector would select function..!

Does dial click or turn smoothly ? Click would make a function select..!

Oooops , two wire hook-up makes it RPM , READIOSTAT.!

ok, you push them in and turn. when you go back to where it started, it pops out.

Hmmm.? Don't know what happened , lost my reply..! So again..!

When the knob is pushed in and turned clock-wise , do you feel"spring like tension".?

Is this device made by Westinghouse..?

Single loop wiring .? 4 terminals..?

Back in the day , things. Were biult to last so I think not a mechanical timer , too small for the era.!

No spring tension felt , I guess a readiostat , RPM , controller.!

You know , the stove burner control and a readiostat do work very similarly ,
They both control amount of current flow by resistance, Hmm..?

Again , a head-ache a come th. ! Eeeek.! :confused: I'm not much help..!

LOL , I do try..! :D

i thinking a stove dial for turning on an electric burner.
no tick tick tick. it doesnt wind down.
thus i think its for a burner.
