Restored SHO Grooved Semaphores for Split/Zwitter   Price: $999US
NOTE: Please be cautious of sellers whose ads are very incomplete, selling all reproduction semaphores with no mention of the fact or no description of clear flaws such as lenses that have warped or shrunk.

Here we have a set of SHO grooved semaphores for splits:

—NOS arms with a little shelf wear so will need a light bead blasting before paint but rock solid and straight
—Nice repro short arms
—Pistons replated in nickel-better than NOS
—Repro Lenses with repro bulbholders
—Mounted on 111 953 021C bodies that are replated in clear cadmium
--Coils recovered in cotton and waterproofed with multiple coats of clear electrical lacquer,
--New bulb wires

Shipping, insurance and paypal fees (for US ciustomers) are included.

We also have:

— Restored SWF ribbed semaphores, only 3 semaphores left.
---We also have other grooved semaphores for sale including complete original ones (repro lenses) on early L143.001.01 bodies and also on 111 953 021A bodies

• First, we strive to start with only the best premium used semaphores. You can be sure of high quality parts from the lenses, arms, bodies and coils. We do not cover up garbage. Occasionally we have a budget set of semaphores for sale and are upfront about any imperfections.
• Second, all work is done by me personally except for bead blasting and painting arms and plating the bodies and pistons.
• Once semaphores are disassembled we:
--Plate pistons in hard nickel except if they are in NOS condition.
--Plate the bodies in clear cadmium
--Clean the solenoids, recover them in cotton and then treat the cotton with multiple layers of clear electrical lacquer. We spend more time on the coils than most others spend on a full restoration. They will not shrink or fall off.
--Clean and polish the lenses by hand and use only original lenses.
--Install new springs on SWF semaphores, the return spring that winds around the hinge pin is made by hand in stainless steel wire as is the large U shaped retainer spring for the pin upon which the piston linkage pivots. The spring from the hook end of the piston linkage to underside of the arm is also new.
--Replace the bulb wire.
--Build and thoroughly test the semaphores
