Frictionless log


This was made in London, by Massey around 1876. It’s pulled behind a boat and logs the mileage by counting the revolutions the torpedoe makes . I get things like this just because they’re so cool looking. There’s a gauge on the backside of this that counts the mileage. It’s “floating” by a thin string above an end table in my loft.
