Blackened brass and German silver
For performing Fourier analysis on arbitrary waveforms

Notes: "This is a Mader-type harmonic analyzer, and uses two fixed-arm planimeters to determine the coefficients of a Fourier series that represents a complex waveform. Fourier analysis can be used for tasks such as analyzing the tides, or breaking a musical chord down into its component frequencies."
