I saw these for sale on Instagram and picked them up. The first one is a Bustler:









I know RustySkull had one of these (>topic here<)

The next one is something called a Vaclight.









I've never seen either before. Although we do have another Bustler (>topic here<)

Yes I saw that too. The Vaclight sounds nice as well. There is a short video where you can hear it on our Instagram page >>here<<;D

The reference in the Science Museum says its 1950s.

Sounds nice that one, not like some nowerdays which can be deafening.
