It may be worth a new search using the other notations.

Re: Mills screw/bolt sizes

Mills as well as Jennings used USS/SAE 5/40,6/32,8/32,10/24, 10/32 flat blade and carriage screws. Unfortunately the above screw sizes appear not to have any Metric or Imperial thread equivalents. The number sizes run down from 1/4”UNC or 1/4"UNF; #12 being just under 1/4" diameter down to #0 which...

I still have a hankering to own a Worlborl as I like the two player action; it looks good fun to me. The Worlborl is a very simple...

Re: Bryans Worlborl

Many thanks for the info BP and JC.

I kept looking at the Y shaped cross bars (which thanks to you I now know are coin tracks) but just couldn't make out what they were for. There couldn't be a simpler time delay mechanism.
