Vibroplex Bug Speed Control

1 Vibroplex OriginalI bought this Vibroplex Original on March 11, 1978 during my Novice years.   It was all of $49.95 back then.

The strange looking thing screwed onto the lever weight is my rendition of a dit speed control and is made of various brass parts and pieces I had in my junk box.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BugSpeedWeight I made it out to my shop and made a simple bug weight to slow down my Vibroplex Original.   It's the large brass weight.   Much nicer than the contraption I hung on it before.   I got the idea from 2B Radio Parts who have a nice assortment of weights available for very reasonable prices.   I made mine because I had the means and brass materials on hand.
