I have that slipring assy on my model 36 that is on display in my basement.  I got the machine straight out of my uncle's junk heap on his farm sometime around 1992 or 1993 and it is largely what gave me the wind bug.  I "restored" it a few times while in grade school and in high school and eventually it ended up being put on display in my house as I got older.  I have always believed that the slipring assembly was original to the machine when I got it, but it could possibly not be as the story goes that there was a second 6 volt machine on the same farm that was sold to a neighbor at some point in time many decades before I got this one.  The second machine was never found.

I'd can't say I've ever seen an all original 36 so you may have solved the mystery.  Makes sense for it to be an add on feature since they offered the utility and deluxe versions.  Great looking display by the way.

Huh, that's super interesting. Reverse image search doesn't bring up anything similar, at least not on my end. It's always amazing to me to see older tech like this and compare it to the new stuff like this. Wonder if we'll be posting pics of those 20 years from now asking the same question Tongue Anyways, not too much to add, other than it looks super cool, especially in your pics CoreyB. Love that setup + the story behind it.
