Seeking a IBM 6148 24v relay as used in the master clocks, like the model 15.

Thanks.

No, i do not have anything at this time to take a digital picture. Cell phone camera is busted. My quess is that type of relay was used in the 1940s. It is not the same style of relay used in the the IBM 91 series masters. I do have one of those relays to use, but if i can find an older relay, then i dont need to make any modification to the mounting or placement of wiring.

There's an online video of an IBM master clock. Does the relay you need look like this? Someone may have one and not know what it is.

Well, if it had an AC rated coil in it, it would be perfect. Thats the style that was in my clock, but it needs an AC rated coil. The one in the ebay auction is a DC rated coil

Often a DC relay will run fine on AC if you connect it through a rectifier.
