      Afternoon Folks

      A little question I've been wondering about:

      Did A-to-Z  Electric Novelty co ever produce a Vibroplex #4 clone?

      I know they produced the Original, Double Lever, and X clones, so it would stand to reason that Levey would at some stage decide to produce a clone of the #4, and considering that it would be easier to produce than say the Double lever or the X, that he'd have given it a go.
      Or had Albright already dispatched poor old Max by the time the #4 was in production?

      But I can't say I've ever seen a AtoZ number #4. were any ever produced?

      Michael and group, I have an early #4 clone that I suspect was made by A-to-Z. It was not labeled but shares many of the characteristics of the early A-to-Z

            Michael and group,
         
            I have an early #4 clone that I suspect was made by A-to-Z. It was not labeled but shares many of the characteristics of
        the early A-to-Z keys. The narrow yoke and heavy hardware are very similar to early labeled A-to-Z keys. The key has a U
        damper, pin terminals and is nickel plated. The gentleman that I bought it from also thought it was A-toZ.
         
                                                Have a great weekend,
                                                   Dave de N5MO

          Thanks for the reply.


          Very interesting indeed, do you have any pictures of this bug? I'd love to see them if you do!

          I find Vibroplex clones quite fascinating.
