WW2 Picker X Ray, Free to Good Home

I have most of the standard Picker WW2 X Ray unit. I do not have the X Ray head or parts from the inside the 2 crates. I do have the two US Army marked shipping crates that housed the X Ray head and arm. I do have the transformer and the control unit that fit on top of it. One of the crates I have was used as the X Ray table for the unit. Would make great movie props. I am moving at some point and would like to give them to a collector or a WW2 Medical re-nactor unit. I have a few pictures I can send to an interested party. Located in NE Ohio. Available for Pick Up only, no exceptions, sorry. Please feel free to PM me with any questions or to obtain photos. Thanks for reading.

I had one of these - "HEAVY" is an understatement. I think it's the Sherman Tank of medical items - but very cool. Mine worked and took me 3 years to find it's new home (in the Fitzsimmons Army Hospital Museum)

The Army's museum is gone but the City of Aurora with the permission of the university has a small museum in the old hospital building. I was told it is in Ike's hospital room on 4th (?) Floor.

I think the contact is through the Aurora History Museum.
