Indexer on eBay
« on: July 31, 2017, 04:28:32 PM »
Interesting indexer attached to a Progressive. Never seen one like this before. Does anyone have any information on it. I'm pretty sure the seller is a member here. Just curious.

Appears to be Home made and very functional. The metal plate looks as though it has been Laser cut, if so it may be of recent manufacture. Just guessing here of course.

Good Shooting

That was a commercial product.  It has been way to long for me to remember anything about it but I remember seeing something like that decades ago.

I agree with Ken, it's a commercial product.  I have a box full of them.   You generally see them on Phelps and earlier Star's like the one in the eBay listing.   They don't seem to fit as well on later model Stars.   There is a Clockwork type spring under the big pulley and it's very susceptible to breakage.  Replacements are hard to come by.

The machine in the eBay listing is a Star Progressive, but has several of Phelps parts.

I've been thinking about that.  I'm pretty sure that that is a Phelps indexer.
