G'day Frank and others,
I had stumbled across this clip recently and was intrigued by the complexity of the instrument operation.
I don't understand the dialogue unfortunately.
I must remember to google Cardani Block instruments when time permits.
Steve.

And here -- http://www.segnalifs.it/it/bl/N_bem.htm -- a good description of 'Il blocco elettrico manuale tipo F.S.' -- however in Italian, on the website of Marco Antonio.

G'day Ulf,
Thanks for the link. I have saved the page to my usb stick to peruse at home.
Even though the text is in Italian, the diagrams will help to understand the operation.
Steve.
