Item: Riggen Flat Pan Anglewinder Frame, slightly modified!
Collector: Jim Allen
Date collected: Apr 2, 2002
Made by: unknown
Made when: 1970s? 80s?
Notes: How much can one modify a commercial pan chassis? This unknown scratchbuilder
remounted the front axle, weighted the drop arm, removed a rigid body mounting system
and replaced it with hinged pans on pin tubes, sealed shut the old motor hole
and reoriented the anglewinder motor mounting! I'm not sure whether to consider
the results horrible or fascinating!
The new body mounting system is simple, effective and interesting,
and I will post close-ups and a drawing of it. Coming soon!
