I'm hoping someone has a spare-parts Type I Curta, and would be willing to sell me one or two circlips for the count gear / transmission shafts. The patient is mine, with a serial number of ~20300 (don't have it in front of me).
I decided to have a go at stripping the unit down for cleaning, and am for the most part mechanically inclined and tooled. It's been fun and interesting... but I applied a bit too much lateral force on one of the circlips when removing it, not realizing how brittle the clip's material was; it snapped in half. I only need one, but figured if someone had 2 to sell I might as well have a spare.
