Tru-Arc questions

1

Tru-Arc bridges aren't plated are they so which material would this one be...stainless steel?

and would a Synchro Series bridge like this one fit a vintage Melita base or only the modern Synchrosonic base?

2

That one has "AL" in the part number, so it's aluminum.

3

Would imagine it is also fairly light in weight, being aluminum.

thanks for that!

I don't know if it fits the vintage Melita base; it was spec'ed for the modern repro.

I'm curious Tim....are your aluminum bridges made o fabrication grade Al or the much denser, heavier aircraft grade?

Actually i'd forgotten I have both a reissue Synchrosonic and old Melita bridge so I just tried swapping the bridges on the bases and they seemed to fit fine so I guess the Tru-Arc Synchro Series top should fit a vintage Melita base too.

Thanks for the info all
