Kiss of Death

blocks lung tester.jpg This antique Lung Tester was made by Mills circa 1905. They did not last very long due to health reasons. They are extremely rare and the one pictured could have been mine after a clever restorer got hold of my basket of original parts. I had paid $25 for this pile of junk, s...
