Vanderblog stalwart Eric Holub sent these photos of the cylinder trip rack on his 325G to help Kyle van Horn solve his alignment problem. The first pair shows the rack in trip (whole assembly, then close-up) and the second pair shows it in print (whole assembly, then close-up).
Interesting. It shows how much features of any model of Vandercook can change. Mine is serial #11831, made around 1947. Is yours earlier or later?
Later, but not much. 13970 from 1950.
Eric – if and when we cross paths, I owe you a beer or three.
I solved it. Check this photo. again. Look at the thickness of my casing vs. yours. Mine is only around a 1/2″ thick, yours is closer to 1″
What a weird change in design.
Ok, so, I’m just taking that stop screw out tomorrow, replacing it with a longer screw, and calling it a day. I think we’ve closed the case on this one.
Thanks Paul, Eric, Perry and Dan… you were all in on this one with me.
