Definitely ...
:-)



I purchased few terracotta and steel marbles recently ;
I noticed steel marbles would make good counter weights for few machines, including Lipsias ...😊

@ Olivier,
So you recon that the wait for this one is a sphere?
While I also found models on the net with the cylinder waits, but perhaps people aded willesco ones as they where missing.
But any how the wait is no problem, I just make a kast of a marble, and make a new lead one.

And then something like this to go with it that would be the ultimate combination.
Before you all think that this is mine, it's not😊
It stand on exhibition in the toy museum at Nuremberg and is from around 1900.
The graphics alone, WOW😍


Cheers,
Danny

Hello Danny,
thats an absolutly outstanding accessory, made by Schoenner.
I add a catalogue pic. There is also a second version known with clockwork drive.

Great job on the restoration of the transmission. 

More lessons learned from a master restorer!

I can’t wait to see what you do with the Lipsia  🤠

Yes, these are so rare, I never saw one before until I found that Photo.
I bet that train must have been also very colorful and  nice.
Strange that these items where not copied by the others, as wind and water mils for instance.
Getting one of those into your collecting must be as winning the lottery.

Hi Danny 🙂

Yes all my Lipsias so far ( 5 ! ) feature a canon ball weight ...
Certainly a fashion phenomenon around 1895' ... 😁

A quick check on my last Lipsia : ball diameter is approx 19mm
( need to dig out my caliper 😊 )

I will weigh it for you as well ...

Please see 4 exemples ... all lightly different !

I believe the shafting is very early Doll.
Never seen them fully confirmed though.

@ Olivier,

Are you sure the diameter of a Ball is 1.9mm?

Cheers,
Danny
