His name was Dr. Philip Davenport of the Connecticut Davenports. He was an acclaimed surgeon...and a highly sought after ghost hunter.

It was the early 1900's and Dr. Davenport was often called upon to investigate occurrences of what can only be described as "supernatural" phenomena.

Upon entering a business or residence he would ask where the phenomena has most recently occurred, and set up "shop" in that particular area.

The detection of sudden change in temperature was well documented as phenomena long associated with a ghostly presence.
For this he brought along a small box specially made for him containing 3 simple thermometers attached to small stands.

He would place them around the area, and one near him or the resident for continuous observation. It was not at all unusual in a true case of supernatural activity to see results.

Often there would be a sleight visible change in temperature, sometimes the red alcohol within the glass tubes would register quick substantial drops in the room temperature, a sure sign of a spirit hovering near by...

Outlaw and Tim Wisseman present CHILLER

A wonderfully aged box with 3 temperature gauge stands. Two stands are normal, but one stand is rather high tech.
At anytime during a presentation, when you want, one of the stands will visibly show the room temperature dropping 7 to 10 degrees and then going back to normal. A sure sign that "something" has passed by.

The red alcohol can clearly be seen against the chart to be going down. A perfect convincer for any seance or ghost hunting experience.
A wonderful relic of a time when things were simple.

This is a really nice piece of equipment! How close does the performer have to be to activate it?

This is very nice indeed - I have used LED displays to simulate things... but this is way more visually in theme... and can go along with an LED so you see things drop and see the 21st century stuff sync with it Smile....

OK, when and $ Smile?

A wonderful and subtle idea, beautifully made! I really like the fact that this could be an all-silent effect - just having your audience wait for the temperature to drop!

Dennfox is already counting his pennies. Very nice effect with everyday (at one time) objects.

The set of 3 stands (2 normal, one special) and antique aged box is $350 shipped

Or you can purchase just the special gaffed one for $195.00, no extra stands and no box, and perform the dropping temperature with it.

Now it's beginning to make sense.

BTW, the special thermometer (single unit) will fit in the Hobbs Box along with an assembled bell and stand and knick knacks Smile
