Does anyone have the specifics on what size horn originally came with the Queen Bee? The only info that I have found was in the catalog that described that it came with a morning glory horn. Color? If anyone has one I would very much appreciate a picture...

Thanks folks....

Joe

Joe,

Here is a picture from the Busy Bee catalog and description of the machine. There is scant reference to the horn in the ad copy, but it appears to be a small, 8 panel morning glory horn that rides the reproducer.

You mentioned a catalog in your original post, so if what I have shared is duplicative to what you already know, I apologize.

Shawn

Along a similar vein, has anyone run across the O'Neill horn and crane shown in this catalog for a Busy Bee or Columbia Q?

I have that catalog(reproduction), too. I sure would like to at least find the crane.
