Green Ray Television.

I've started on a freelance machine inspired by Granville Bradshaw's wonderful fortune-teller.
It isn't a replica, and I don't really want to use any original parts, if I can help it.
That said, the main lens casting, with its 'The Green Ray' wording, looks like being a major challenge.
I'm open to suggestions on that one.
If I can work out how to post pictures, I'll keep you informed.

Excellent. I attempted to play one at LUNA PARK in Sydney but sadly it just ate my coin. Very hard to photo because of I’ll the lights

I know the guy who restored it I’m sure I could get some detail photos if required.

I take it that we're looking at the camera flash, rather than the Green Ray having degenerated to white!

Hi Brigham, couple of pics for you.

The first is at Watermouth Castle and the second is at Wookey Hole.

Great, thanks. The Wookey Hole one is the one I'm working from.
It appears in Braithwaite's book.
My version ISN'T a fortune teller.
I'll post pictures when I've learned how!

I wonder how long the Green Ray at Wookey Hole has been there or if it is a recent acquisition? The artwork reminded me of the same on a VERY expensive one for sale in the US last year.

Sadly when I went to Wookey Hole a couple of Summers back, only the hole was working.
They desperately needed a key man (person?) or somebody to write out more and more Out of Order signs. :NBG:
