    Mercury has an interesting medical history: IIRC about three tons of it are still put into teeth here in North America every year, despite only plutonium being a more toxic element. The idea that...

    Confusion can creep in here with the terminology. By "Turret assembly" I believe Warren is referring to the entire bronze/brass casting that the range and deflection "drums" (aka "knobs in N.A.)...

    Very interesting piece Roger. The countersunk screws on the "plate, cover, segment, locking, erector cell" are quite unique.

    Yes, I believe they were all four groove. IIRC the lands have a noticeable bevel on the outside edge which could be mistaken for wear at a glance. Pretty sure they came in 10, 12 and 14:1 twists...

    I'm no expert, but I'm going to say you need more diffusion inward from the edges. It is remarkable what really good lighting can do for a photo. The late Dr. Richard Stork took some very fine...

    This is of course referring to a case of over-turn: where the barrel turns past the point it should be at when tightly "wound in".

    I assume feeler guages were inserted between the front face of...

    I expect the washer under the head of the front guard screw would be described as a locking washer, at least here in N.A., as the function of the two raised edges is to inhibit rotation, not impart...
