In fact, the Verité system does not bypass the feedscrew but distributes the horn weight in a different way so there is less pressure on the reproducer (and cylinder).
I will try to measure a Verité system for Coquet.

Ah, OK, I see. It still transports the whole system with the feedscrew. I was confused, because the reproducer is directly connected to the horn and does not use the carriage.

Thanks
Andreas

Hi Jeff,

Thank you very much for the dimensions of the Système Verité. I'm only missing a couple of things: The diameter of the rods (5 -6 mm?) and the material (plain steel?)

I hope this week I will be able to make a first batch of connectors. I will keep you informed.

Thank you very much in advance,

Pedro

Hi Pedro,
So, one more challenge ! (I'm more than impressed with what you are doing...)
Jeff

...and now I wonder why they made it with rods of different diameters, which makes absolutely no sense from an industrial standpoint. A usage nightmare, a storage nightmare, and an industrial nightmare... :?

After spending several hours searching on the web I'm going to try to buy at least 2 different sizes of rods to be as close to the original as possible. The good thing is that I can buy metric and imperial sizes so the possibilities are greater.

Went this morning to do some shopping and bought the materials for doing 6 Système Verité. Stay tuned!
