Take apart: X-Ray Control Panel

This is a really interesting tear-apart of an X-Ray control panel. There are a lot of nice components that could easily be hacked into something new. What would you use those amazing rotary switches for?

One of the electricians at work gave me a bunch of circuit boards from decommissioned equipment this week. It’s usually elevator stuff, so I hadn’t paid much attention to it other than to note the pretty colored wires. Then I was taking it out of my trunk to put into a “process later” pile when I noticed the front. “X-Ray.” 60kV tube voltage. “Fine focus.” Whaaaa???
