    Deluxe (all chrome) Universal "Rotatable" Dow bug. S/N 8102

    Made by Dow in Winnipeg, Manitoba in the 1940's.

    The unique design allowed the user to rotate the pendulum at any angle they wanted including flip it over 180' and use it like a left handed bug.

    Nicely preserved bug but NOT MINT condition.

    Please note there are some fine hairlines on the chrome plating if you look at the right angle. There is also minimal chrome flaking on the pendulum weight. The screw that holds the red plastic damper is bent and doesn't turn freely. The bug works fine but the next owner should replace the damper screw. It cost me $15 the last time I had a screw made and plated. Knurling is standard off-the-shelf.

    The last image is from one of these I saw sell on ebay, and it was missing the original rear damper.

    A-OK payment any way that works for the buyer.

    Local pick up in Grand Rapids, MI OK too.

    You have to be pleased or you get a refund and I pay postage both ways.
