deja vu

If you have a set of the Figure Making plans from the 1975 edition of the Maher Course of Ventriloquism (Lesson 18) then you have seen photos of the inside of the very same head. But it has changed, as you can see here. I added raising eyebrows and changed the self-centering spring(s) on the eyes. All has been restrung and new levers installed. Works superbly!
Note: Most figure makers mount the moving eyes on a shelf. A perfectly fine arrangement. But I have always suspended the eyes on the figures I build and while I've had 40 years over which to change my method, the fact that I have never done so seems to indicate I'm happy with the service this setup provides. And the fact that it is an easy install doesn't hurt!
