what is this thing part of? actual metal content


formatting link

got this from a friend cleaning out extra stuff - I"m trying to figure out
what it's part of - is it related to film loading? I haven't seen anything
quite like it, but there's a lot I havent seen - the case is probably
aluminum, painted gray, the gears are stainless, this is not a cheap item,
whatever it is. Military?

Gotta picture of the other side of the device?

I sent Wes a photo - for anyone else, the other side is very plain - I can send you the photo if you think you have a clue - there is a shaft with a flat on it coming through a boss with an o-ring, nothing else. This was probably bolted to something via the four holes that are visible.

aaah, yes, John - thank you ---- but of course I knew that - the text file describes it has having a vreeder roote counter on it - but my real question, in case you weren't being coy and I am not being dense, is "what was it counting - to what purpose was it employed" - I am hoping that someone recognizes what it was used on so I can try to get it to someone who has one of whatever it goes with - as you note, I certainly don't need a mechanical counter in these days of cheap digital encoders.

In the absence of any actual film sprockets, I'd have to say, congratulations, you've got a counter there. I've got several bulk film loaders, nothing like that's attached.

It's a counter Bill. The old version of a rotary encoder.

Well Bill, I've seen similar on old box conveyors. This one, however, looks like it's meant to be removed after it counts whatever it's counting. Sorry.

Normally your emails get through to my usenet spam catcher address. Didn't get it this time.
