Vintage Christmas Tree Turner
I plugged it in and it works perfectly. Spins really nicely just like it did 40+ years ago when my parents used it in their house. It is to be used with a tinsel tree that doesn't have lights on it because the lights would just get tangled in the base. There's that auxillary plug at the bottom that my Dad tells me is for a "Color Wheel" that rotates different colors through a spotlight onto the tree. I've looked for the Color Wheels, but they're like $50 on ebay, so we might just try to go without this year. Now, I have to head down to the crawlspace and stash this thing for the next 5 months.
