Pohl Mechanical Television Disk

(click on picture for high resolution image)

This disk was made by Pohl Television Scanner of Detroit. It has 60 lines, and is made of paper. Disks of this sort were made for inexpensive receivers. They were mounted to wooden hubs. An advantage of these disks is that they are very light weight, so small motors can be used.
