Ron,

You might try "Small Parts Inc." www.smallparts.com
I know they have .9mm and .7mm hex keys.

Owen


Thanks Owen,

I've never seen such small set screws before in my life. Once you start to get into the "guts" of the A3P there are a "ton" of small set screws.

Ron, yesterday one of the acts tour was fixing his RC heliocopter. I watched and spotted the tiniest allen hex head wrench I'd ever seen. He told me he bought a set at a local hobby store that specializes in RC airplanes, cars, etc.

You might call a shop to find out.

Thank You all! (IMG:http://www.observatorycentral.com/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Owen's suggestion of "Small Parts" did the trick. They have an unbelievable selection of really "odd ball" and very usable fun things. I ordered a few of all their strange hex wrenches and the size I need is sure to be among them.

It is interesting that this site was pointed out by someone else under the name of "Industrial Supplies" but I did not spend the time to peruse the entire site. Well worth a visit if your into this sort of thing.

I may have mentioned it as I searched the site awhile back.

Ron, do you have the part no. of the wrenches you ordered. I got a bit confused at which hex wrenches will be needed for the A3P. I will have to dismantle parts of the analogs as well when I get home.

The larger wrench is a .050 inch which usually comes with most hex sets. Small Parts has a package of 5 for 90 cents under part number W-050-05.

The smaller size I'm not sure of yet. I have ordered packs of five of everything under .050 inch that they have. As soon as I find out which one is the proper size I will post it. The A3P is early enough that everything is in English sizes.

My first order from Small Parts just arrived and here are the two allen wrenches that are required to take the A3P planet analogue apart.

Seeking GOTO M-1 formerly at Grand Rapids Museum and the Detroit Science Center. If you have this instrument we would be thrilled if you would please post any information regarding your restoration efforts. Also searching for the whereabouts of any other GOTO M-1's that may still exist except for the one at the Discovery Centre in Melbourne Australia which is safely on display in the foyer. My sincere gratitude to Martin of the Discovery Centre in Melbourne for supplying additional information about their historic GOTO M-1.

I was in my attic today searching for an interferometer and ran across a bunch of assorted filament type lamp bases which I would like to make available to forum members interested in building their own planetarium aux projectors or just to experiment with.

Thanks,

Those all look like bayonet type sockets. Is that true?

I have a box of sockets that have a screw type minature lamp base as well.
I have another box or two that I have not got around to even opening yet.
If you send me your mailing address, I will ship you a nice experimenters' assortment.

If you don't run out, I'd love some - especially the screw base.

I'll send a PM with my address.

You got it, I do not believe I will be running out...
When are you coming to Big Bear?
