Hi Helmut :wave:


Do you always shop with GADGET GIRL on eBay ?

GADGET GIRLS prices look a tad high to me.

You could 'loose your shirt' gambling on a GADGET GIRL listing ! ;)


I suppose my $0.00c price-tag was hard to beat though !! :bg:





Sorry Helmut, no '5 Einsteins Award' :brill: :brill: :brill: :brill: :brill: for research this time ! :f:

There do seem to be TWO versions of the stalwart No.8 about.


GADGET GIRL has the mooodern one I think, with all the 'hoop-la'.

Mine I think is possibly an older version of the No.8 which is ratchetless. :shocked:

Perhaps I should have gone with GADGET GIRL after all, instead of scratching around in the dirt looking for precision equipment.

Analogue 'finger torque' is the answer here though, works every time ! ;)


Helmut, Tony, photos of the 'genuine article' to follow, or course.

I did have a spot of bother snapping it on the Motorola.

The lighting could have been better, it is very shinny from all the refurbishment !


:moose:

Helmut, I think it received a 'light blow' with the ol' ball-pein...

...or maybe Pops & I just twiddled the adjustment screw a smidgin. L:

A feature on the left of GADGET GIRLS eBay model.

It was 40 years ago though.

Mmm...
