Wanted Replacement half drum for a Furlex Type B Mk2 - Request closed, used furling drum now received

After some overenthusiastic levering with a screwdriver I managed to break the spring finger one one of the half drums on the Furlex fitted to my Moody 35. Just wondered if anyone had an old spare half drum available for sale. I'm assuming that because of its age (1993) there are no new spares available.

Relevant part numbers are:
  • 539-008 Line Drum Half
  • 591-270 Label Drum Half
  • 539-008 Line Drum Kit (I assume the kit is the half drum + the label)
The attached photographs show the offending part in its broken condition

Many thanks
Grant

Hi Grant,

I don't have one, but those riggers who are natural hoarders tend to keep bits from old furlers they have replaced with shiny new ones for customers. I guess that's the most likely source.

Hi Peter,
Thanks for the suggestion, I had the same thought and am slowly working my way round the local riggers; somebody somewhere is bound to have one.
Best regards
