11/03/2017 More starting pics
1st Left & right legs & steel arc. Everything was removed from lower frame to start cleaning and repainting. Again note color.
Well that was about everything that was in the "basket of parts".
Missing, Well I've bought a few basket cases, always it seems missing the front leg and pads and telescoping support pole. We have that problem and we are working on it. Need a front leg "fsu" marked with riveted pads, anyone? I might have to take it off another Lafette that I own if needed. That's a help request, Please.
2nd Telescoping support pole. Don't have a lot of info on that area and could use help on that. In the pic you should note two different types of inner pole and one out side pole. Need information and pics in this area as we want to get it right. Ok, read Bergflak review read again review learn something. We will be using the middle and lower piece. Why because reviewing etc the "fsu" has a groove cut in it. Top one goes to another pile. Now if we can find a better one?
3rd pic of another project of mine, restoring a 1936 "fsu" Lafette. Another time.
4th pic of a few spare parts, I have more small stuff not in pic. Note there are 3 front legs in this pile, none "fsu" marked, 2 are "ecy"
5th pic of more spare parts, ok some of you folks with eyes for details might note the Bren tripod on the bottom of the pile. The Bren tripod is a model 1 early tripod going into my collection and I hope to rebuild a double dovetail Bren to sit on it. Another day on that one.
Should note I own a few more Lafettes not shown, I have shared a few pics of some of the others in other threads.
