Is there a name for this thing?

This hingelike device is a sliding window lock for my vintage Viking.* I've looked a lot and not found anything like it.* Any ideas or is this a one-of ?* Failing finding a replacement, I'll have to figure out something using a hinge as the basis.* Just trying to keep the old girl real.* Appreciate any help.

Try West Marine.* Perko makes it and it's called a "sliding window stop".

Here's the link to West Marine's online catelog.

I owe you one, Steppen. Sometimes, nomenclature is everything.

I thought feeblefletzers only came in top and bottom. Have they been superceded by left and right? They are still double oscilating aren't they?

Top and bottom are still double*oscillating but the left rights are not. The best I recall.

Dubbo eh - wow - famous place...well, sort of...was the zoo there then? Did you ever visit 'The Dish'..? Ie the radio telescope which relayed the TV pictures of the 1st moon landing, and immortalised in the film of the same name.

RE: Is there a name for this thing?

The zoo at that time was a couple of sad emus and a few roos, as I recall. *We visited again a couple of years ago and it is now quite the attraction. *I don't remember the dish, but maybe we saw it. *At that time I was more interested in geology, especially beach formations. *I noted a lot of attractive women hung our in these locations..... *We usually cleared out of town and went caravaning during school breaks to see as much of the country as we could during the 2 years we were there. *

I wanted to search out where bush fly central was - the place in Oz with the most flies per square inch - and located it during summer break in Bega near an outflow pipe at a cheese factory.

Oz is the second (maybe the first) best place on earth to live. *Heaven must look a lot like the Margaret River Valley.....

*Being an ex-NZ'er, I'd say second best, and I sometimes wonder why I left, but then I'm biased.* However, it is a pretty good place to be, here.

'The Dish' is at Parkes, not far from Dubbo, and if you'd been there you'd remember it.* There are actually 3 large radio telescope dishes there.

As for the place with most flies...my vote would actually go to Western Australia, they are legend over there.* When my wife and I did a campervan trip round the Southwest area, including the Margaret River wine district we loved it, but when we got to Albany we saw people wearing hats with things like bee-keeper veils hanging down fron the brim, and we thought, "this can't be good."* It wasn't - the flies literally landed on you like a bee swarm.* It all depends what time of the year apparently.* Their arrival announces the start of summer.

Apologies for wandering off topic, now where were we...oh yeah, I think we did name that thing.* That's why we wandered off topic....

I hope we can get to NZ in Delfin sometime soon, or at least that is the plan, via Chile. *It really does look lovely and if we had been able to, we would have worked in NZ instead of Oz, but they weren't having anything to do with furriners at the time.

RE: Is there a name for this thing?

Several PMMs have featured the Egret, a Nordy 46, traveling round in NZ - very interesting. Do you subscribe..? I just wish it was a sane thing to do to take my Lotus over there on her own bottom, but sadly, I don't think it would be sensible - feasible yes - sensible, no. But hey your little ship...no trouble..!
