This was the first impression of a story of success. Sometimes I like to gamble a little bit a so I took the risk and invest 40$ for a interesting paperweight, in the worst case. The description of that auction was very acurate. No part was missing. The view finder glas was unfortunately broken at the transport, I replaced it with a object carrier from a microscope and a piece of Scotch tape. Winding lever screw was hard to remove and work on it causes a little more of scratches, the leathering was really well glued, hardly to remove and one screw at the bottom plate has to be drilled out. Resoldering the cables was a little like brain salad surgery but after some research in the net I found pretty good instructions and so I was able to reactivate that amazing gem. I will not retouch some some of the traces of work (the rewinding lever screw and some edges of the leathering) that I could not avoid, because this, IMO, are scars of its history. Now the monster eye is like new and it?s real joy when the digital crowd turns their heads if I draw it out of my pocket! ;-) I am thinking of replacing the leatherette with some cream colored snake skin, but thats another story.

365 - The 2010 Edition * November 29, 2010 At some point, you just have to say goodbye. I made this old holster for my tape measure at work from scratch. Since it was custom made, it fit like a glove. I could whip out my tape and slap it back into the holster without looking or even thinking about it. I had seen a guy on Candid Camera doing work as a carpenter with one, and the way he handled his tools showed what a pro he was at his craft. I don’t carry a lot of tools at work – just a tape and a pencil. But this old holster allowed me to keep my mind where it needed to be – on the problem at hand – not on where I put my tape. But nothing lasts forever, and I made several poor repairs – twisted wire where the rivet failed – staples along a rip in the leather – and finally a paper clip where the wire failed.. The leather itself has become brittle and weak beyond repair. I have a new one now – made in China for 5 bucks. I looked for one made in the USA, but couldn’t find one. It’s gonna take some getting’ used to…
