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.!

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.!
