WHILE I WAS WAITING TO HAVE MY TINTYPE STEREO VIEW TAKEN THE WOMAN NEXT IN LINE HAD JUST BOUGHT A LEWIS PATTBERG TYPE VIEWER WHICH SHE LET ME BORROW FOR MY PICTURE. I LATER FOUND THIS PEDESTAL MOUNTED VERSION AT THE TRADE SHOW.

ANOTHER PEDESTAL VIEWER I MADE USING LENSES FROM AN ANTIQUE HANDHELD VIEWER. I MADE A WIDER LENS BOARD TO ACCOMODATE GLASSES AND COVERED AN ALUMINUM HOOD WITH LEATHER.

I BOUGHT THIS KEYSTONE PEDESTAL TELEBINOCULAR BECAUSE OF THE LIGHT FIXTURE EVEN THOUGHT THERE WAS SOME PROBLEMS WITH THE PEDESTAL. I FOUND THIS BRASS FIRE HOSE NOZZEL AT THE SAME SWAP MEET. NOW I HAVE ANOTHER STEAM PUNK VIEWER.

TWO RECENT BREWSTER VIEWERS. TOP ONE HAS BOTH FOCUS AND INTEROCULAR KNOBS.

THIS "STEREOVIEWER" BY KEYSTONE WAS MADE FOR EYE TESTING BUT I ALWAYS WANTED THIS VIEWER FROM THE 50'S OR 60'S BECAUSE OF THE OPTICS AND BUILT IN LIGHTING.

A MULTI VIEWER WHERE THE GLASS PLATES DROP TO THE VIEWING POSITION THEN DROP DOWN TO THE LOWER SECTION AS THE LENSES ARE MOVED OUT.

A BECKER'S SWEETHEART VIEWER. I HAD TO DO SOME MINOR MOUNTING ADJUSTMENTS ON THE ROTATING MECHANISM AND HAVE PUT 25 YELLOW MOUNT J.J. REILLY VIEWS IN ONE DIRECTION AND 25 ORANGE MOUNT J.J. RILLY VIEWS IN THE OTHER DIRECTION. I ALWAYS WANTED A DUAL VIEWING STEREOSCOPE.

I REMOVED THE LENS HOOD IN EACH CASE BECAUSE THE HOOD CONFLICTS WITH MY GLASSES.
