Can anyone ID what this equipment is or does? The dial says beer pressure.
Sorry for the small pics, they are from my friend's phone.

WTF is right.
What is that thing - it maybe the coolest beer thing-a-ma-jig ever.
I hope you now own this.
How about some bigger pictures - if it is related to beer, I am sure one of the guys (or gals) will recognize it.

Beer Operated Time machine. They build them back in the 70's but were obsoleted by the Delorean in the 80s. The Beer Presure is what determined what how far back or forward you would jump in time. My Grandpa had one.

I can't tell what it is based on the size of the pictures... I've seen that dial before though on larger fermenters...

Can't really tell by the pics but maybe someone just used a beer pressure gauge for some other purpose . It would read the same with water or other fluid

Really hard to tell but, it looks like a old assed inline carbonator or a gas blender. Mounted on a funny platform thing.

A rudimentary google finds Janette Manufacturing as an Agricultural equipment manufacturer from 1933.
