Machina Electrica can be seen below Cetus in this card from Urania's Mirror (1825), between Fornax and Sculptor.

Machina Electrica (Latin for electricity generator) was a constellation created by Johann Bode in 1800. He created it from faint stars between Fornax and Sculptor, to the south of Cetus. It represented an electrostatic generator. The constellation was never popular and is no longer in use.
