Mills AC/DC Rotary Converter for 32 Volts
By Ralph Schultz

Hello everyone -- As the subject suggests, I have a 32-volt Mills
converter exactly like the Violano uses except for the fact that it is
a 110 volt input but the output is 32 volts and 6 amps.  Does anyone
know what Mills built to use this voltage on?

I know Mills made many different gambling machines and expression
pianos, and violin machines as well as race horse machines.  Some said
they used them for farm radios which were proper back then, but that
really doesn't make sense either; why not just have a radio to plug
into 110 volts rather then generate 32 volts?  Anyone got an answer?

Thanks in advance,
Ralph J Schultz
