Zig,


No, it is a standard 1d pendulum, requiring a 1m to 1.5m length pendulum.
At the bottom of the stand is a curved bar that can be used to mark the
height of the swing. I am not sure what it may have used to suspend the
pendulum bob, or what it may have used as a bob. At the top of the stand,
there are a couple of knobs that look like they could be used to adjust the
length of two or three pendulums. I would imagine I could use a plumb bob
suspended from a cord for the pendulums. I was just curious to know more
about the apparatus, which is why I was wondering if anyone knew more about
the device.

Tappers,



Does anyone know what the model number is for the CENCO large floor-standing
pendulum? I have one that has been gathering dust for several years and I
would like to put it back into service. But I need a manual and maybe some
replacement parts for it. But the only markings I can find on the pendulum
is the CENCO label. I have pictures I could post or send to you, if need
be. Thanks.
