varney Posted June 23, 2019 Share Posted June 23, 2019 I'm trying to find out what kind of strap arrangement Jeffries used for their metal palm rests. This four row anglo has what appears to be an original set of straps which are fixed to the base of the palm rest with a small doubled screw plate. The top of the strap is held by the standard knurled button screwing directly into the wood of the action box frame. At the palm rest 'shoulder' where on a wooden version there would typically be a metal strap guide or buckle, this one has another screwed plate which fixes the strap at that point. I'm attaching pictures to illustrate. I suspect these screwed plates may not be original (though they seem pretty old) and would imagine there was a metal guide buckle which held the strap relatively snugly at the shoulder and allowed it to be adjusted using the brass button on top. I've looked for pictures of similar Jeffries metal plam rests and found a couple that do have the metal buckle, but I cant see if (or how) it was held at this shoulder point. Can anybody supply pictures showing the strap arrangement on these metal palm rests? Many thanks, Michael Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
