    I loved listening to them as they sequenced; it was perfection.

    I liked the sound the SSR-10 made. But boy that circuit board on the back was tempermental.

    I don't recall the model of the other WM clock in the photo (on the left)... it has a rotating drum in the middle that indexes the stations. Early 1960's, I think.
     
  5. Has everybody given up identifying the 10th head from the left?

    It appears to be a brass pop-up.
    Possibly a Fimco or Meister head.

    Yeah, I give up. (I just realized I got some of those 'vintage' items new in the box :()
     
  8. Rainbird 171 HiPop Don't know that there was ever a brass head made that popped up higher. Die cast as opposed to sand cast so it was also less likely to hang up. It was my compete with WM head. I'd show the height difference and it was a good 1/2" higher that the WM brass head which dominated the Dallas market.

    I think Rainbird also tried a brass head with a stainless steel piston.
