Re: Cleaning a Model F XT Safely

Can we call this the "Old Beamspring Photo Thread" or something like that? I really think we need a central place to post old beamspring pictures like this one.
Sure thing!

Honest opinion on beamspring boards?

Dear lucky users of beamsprings I have a few questions for you. What's your honest opinion on that switch? What do you love? what do you hate? What will you change? Do you think that there's gonna be a modern reissue of beamspring boards? just like the model F ones. Have a great day! :mrgreen:

I have a couple of those manuals, but they aren’t in very good shape. They have something like oil on the pages, but I think it’s all still readable. Maybe not the best candidate for a restoration?
Thanks! Do you have some photos of it?
