Re: eBay return scam

Is it not worth messaging eBay referencing the original dispute when he claimed to have returned it?

Re: Rosenfield mechanism identified in 'What the Butler Saw' case

That’s really interesting! Definitely the same mech. Older than I thought.
I’ve finished working on mine now. Made 7 new carriers to replace the missing ones from brass sheet and sorted the electrics with a small bulb and battery.
Printed some pics I found online and job's a goodun!

Re: What the Butler Saw - info please

Thanks. Slightly embarrassingly I’m concluding it’s my eyes! My wife sees them all fine! The design of the viewer prevents you wearing glasses which might help me!

Re: What the Butler Saw - info please

I’ve managed to print up some images from online to replace the missing ones. However there is a problem! The images don’t resolve into a single stereo image at the distance they are presented to the lenses. You need to hold them about 4cm further away for them to display correctly. As I think this ...

Re: What the Butler Saw - info please

Yep it’s certainly solid. And I wouldn’t fancy disassembling the spring. Looks like it could do some serious damage. You need to be pretty fit just to wind it up!

Re: What the Butler Saw - info please

Thanks. I think mine are about that size. I’ve just managed to find some reasonable resolution images from an American museum site which I’ve downloaded so I’ll have a go and getting some printed up at the correct size and see how it works. I did notice that most of the images in a machine don’t see...

Re: What the Butler Saw - info please

So I now have the mech out of the case. Anyone recognise a maker ? All seems to work but needs new wires to the switch and light setup. Almost half of the photo carriers are missing. Not sure if this is by design or not. Less pics but longer in each one? As indicated by the vacant holes in the wheel...

Re: 1930's Genco Pinball

Possibly not much help but standard pinballs are 1 1/16 inch or 27mm and have been for many years. Now whether these many years stretch back to this era I’m not sure. I restored a Gottlieb pinball from 1958 and that definitely used this size. Try them and see. They are widely available for a pubs or...
