Sparto Side Repeater project

PostPost by: elanfan1 » Sun May 28, 2023 11:45 am

Some may recall I produced exact copies of the Sparto lenses almost 10 years ago now. I sold quite a few but I’ve retained maybe 11 pairs with the intention of duplicating the entire unit. Well I’m a long way along that route but having recently been in hospital for a bit over 2 months I am now losing the enthusiasm to complete it(rather Than hit any particular snags or issues. I’m hoping there’s someone with the ££s to purchase what I have with the likelihood they could double or triple their money for not too much effort.

I need to dig out all the parts to get exact numbers and will do so if any interest is shown.

I have 20+ amber lenses, at least 2 white lenses, approx 40 unpainted 3D printed bezels, 2 pots of Humbrol aluminium colour paint, quite a few 6BA screws, approx 40 duplicate Sparto style bases (these need a terminal resin glueing or riveting on and the holes for the 6BA tapping out. A 3 piece tap set is included). Plain rubber gaskets are included to complete the units.

There will be spare bases and bezels in excess of those required to complete lamp units which I anticipate would also sell well here or on eBay.

At this stage I’m not looking to sell individual (pairs) of lamp units but if no interest in the project I may do so.

PM for my direct email address
