Trying to help a gentleman out. He contacted me needing the lid support hinge. I think i got a junk one twenty years ago and parted it. I have the support i think was on it. But he said his as two hole on the lid and two screw holes on the motor board. Any photo would be great.

I once had a 4-7 that had this same lid support. I no longer have it, unfortunately, or I'd post photos. It did not have the 2 spring loaded arms shown in another post. There could well have been variations, I suppose. There often were.

According to "The Victor Data Book" by Robert Baumbach, the spring balanced lid supports were introduced with the model VV 4-7 (type A) starting with serial number 38001.

The 4-7 had spring loaded pots like a credenza. I junked a 4-7 earlier this year and have the lid supports if someone needs them. In fact I ahve all of the hardware form this model and the grille.
