Okay, these little gems can be very difficult to find as the only way to get them is to strip them from the original equatorial mounts. The equatorial head I got these from was shot. You know how beginners can be with equipment. However, a few parts remained unscathed by the abuser and these are the leftovers I no longer need for my Tasco projects.

All pieces are from a Tasco 10-TE from 1967-68

1) Declination slow motion tangent assembly. This is the piece that you mount the slow motion control cable to and allows for manual slewing. Made of aluminum and brass and made to high quality. The worm is very excellent with perfect threads. All original on the paint and no dings, dents, or warping in the form. You will need the M8-1.25 axis clamp for this to fit secure to the declination shaft.
Weighs 6oz $8.50

2) 7-TE/10-TE/15-TEA machined aluminum tube ring locking screw. VERY hard to get these loose. The male threads are M6-1.0 Cosmetics are very excellent and form and threading perfect. $7.50

3) 7-TE/10-TE/15-TEA set of (4) machined brass tube ring hinge screws with (2) machined brass tube ring hinge mount plates. The screws are M4s, but I cannot get a count on them as they are a custom thread. You need these screws and plates to make your tube ring open. Cosmetics are excellent and screws are perfect with UNDAMAGED slits! $5.00

4) 7-TE/10-TE/15-TEA aluminum declination dial with both original mounting screws. Needle is true, in excellent condition, and the white strip on the tip is easily legible. $3.50

Prices don't include shipping. Happy to ship to anyone on the planet.
