In the Society stand we have an example of the original design of lever frame and lots of people play with in including numerous children. We have never yet has a breakage and I am sure that the design that Howard has produced will be equally robust. The one I am building will be for the stand when it is finished and will have all the interlocking needed so it will get a good test.
The Stores will continue to stock both versions.
