1. We are talking about the little cast metal "dogbone" looking thing that some early electrified machines use which allows the motor to swing from "in use" mode where a wheel on the motor shaft is in contact with the handwheel to "in storage" mode where it swings into the space under the arm.
2. The only one I have currently is cracked into two pieces. one half is currently "fused" to the motor side. I am PB Blaster'ing the screw that holds it.
3. Does anyone have one that is removable?
a. If so can I get a series of photos of it with a ruler next to it?
b. could I borrow one from someone to make a mold and at cast a resin model
According to page 3 of the "Adjusters manual for Model 20's" it says Model 20-1 and 20-10 are hand crank, Model 20-2 is an Electric.
She ALWAYS gets "oohhhh's and Ahhhh's when I hit the switch, even from other Guys. The line is invariably "Ok, so THAT is cute..."
What amazed me is that fact that the original plug and cord are in incredible shape. The cord feels like fresh rubber. It feels like it came out of a time machine.
The ONE negative is that it is currently using a rubber o-ring as a drive belt. I have seen an OLD photo and it looked like the original belt was a square profile. NO idea what material, I assume rubber.
