Hmmm, could very well be.
Tho they were decades apart, they may have been father and son..... or grandson?

It's interesting to note that your blasting machine is referred to as a magneto, as opposed to the reference of a dynamo, that many other blasting machines were acclaimed to be of at that time.

i think the real question we're overlooking here, is why do you have a blasting machine in the first place!?! it's definitely a cool piece!
