Notes This suspension arm was used while museum stalff attempted repairs to the Duxbury siphon recorder (I.03.079). It has a new suspension of UV resistant upholstery thread instead of original silk. There are 2 conductor wires and the coil was sucessfully tested in a mocked up test using a permanent magnet (I.04.008). Unfortunately this suspension arm does not seem to fit any of the three siphon recorders in the museum.
