    Hi,
    I have recently acquired a Gents C7 (1947) which, with help from forum members, is now running nicely.
    However, it is missing the small white 'Pull to advance" tag at the end of the string. I thought I would make up a reproduction. It would be a great help if someone could post a high quality photo of this tag along with its diameter. Many thanks.

    Hi,
    Its a bit late, but I thought I would post a picture of the reproduction of the "Pull to Advance" tag I got made up.
    I used an online sign printing service - its etched plastic. Its a fraction too big (25mm) and the font is the closet I could manage, but otherwise I think its pretty good and only cost a few of dollars. Thanks again for the help, Roger.
    Richard
