This close-up of a points and condenser set (dual point application shown) shows the details of the point set construction. From this photo it's easy to see the rubbing blocks and to visualize how their wearing down will change the adjustment of the point gap or dwell. The condenser is a simple reservoir for residual electricity looking for a place to go once the point set opens. Although very simple in construction and function, without the condenser the points would be fried in a short time.
