LBSC Gert Drawings

I recently acquired the drawings for 'Gert' and I wonder if anyone can explain why there are two sets of drawings for the cylinders, slide valves & eccentrics?

It seems that the 'original' ? definition of the cylinders, valves & eccentrics are on sheet 3; but an additional sheet 9 is provided that has alternative dimensions for all.

I assume that this sheet 9 was created in order to correct errors or give a more satisfactory solution?

Any help much appreciated.

The only obvious difference between the two drawings is the size of the valve and the valve buckle along with the eccentric. The rest of the drawing/s, after a quick glance, appear to be the same. Suspect sheet 9 is an update on sheet 3 , but this is only a guess

I think a post on the MECH forum may well be worth a try.

Gert was a LBSC design produced exclusively for Reeves and was not published in ME certainly, and I suspect not in any other magazine either, so they may be a source of information provided it has been passed on through the various changes in ownership.

This and the 3½" version Daisy, do not even make it into Brian Hollingsworh's book on LBSC.

Interesting Nick

Perhaps not one of his popular designs ?

I see Reeves no longer list the 3.5 inch Daisy.
