High Wire Bicycle Rider. Hi, I’m looking to build the “High Wire Bicycle Rider” model. I’ve never seen an example of this model featured on the inside left lid of the 1960 no. 10084. I don’t have this set in my collection, and no access to the proper How to make em manual. If you can point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

My wife’s aunt recently passed and left her four Erector sets: 1938 8 1/2 ferris wheel, 1949 9 1/2 ferris wheel, 1951 10 1/2 amusement park, and engineer’s set 10171. We have all the boxes and lots of components. What I am looking for is a parts detail of what came in each kit and quantities/instruction. Any details you could provide would be appreciated. Thank You. Carl Mount (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I have a modest collection of 10 vintage Gilbert chemistry sets. I have two that I can find no reference info on: “Little Jim Chemistry Outfit for Boys” (1922 manual included) and a Gilbert set that feature “Plastics and Glass”, including an M5839 flier. I could send pictures if I knew where to send them and to whom. Roy J. Arlotto (email@example.com).
Merle Carnegie’s Mysto Erector book – My name is Michelle and I am currently researching Mysto magic sets. Merle Carnegie’s book “The Mysto Erector: The Story of the Mysto Manufacturing Company” has been highly recommended. Any information you can offer on how I might purchase a copy will be most appreciated. Thanks. Michelle Ainsworth (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Maraldene Kennels – I am in search of person(s) that would have expertise in the area of Mr Gilbert’s Maraldene Kennels and his German Shepherd Dogs. I have original documents, photographs and the Maraldene Kennel booklet highlighting the top dogs in the kennel as well as a hand written notebook/log of breeding’s and litters that were conducted dating back to 1925. I would love to get in touch with an expert or historian that would be able to appraise the documents.Thank you for your time, John Sequino (email@example.com).
Selling Erector Sets: My father (age 73) started collecting Erector Sets probably about 20 years ago or more. He now has an entire room in his house dedicated to his hobby. However, he has decided to move from his current home to be closer to my brother and his family, so he is downsizing. He’s overwhelmed with the amount of stuff he has to go through in the house and doesn’t really know what to do with all of her Erector Sets and parts. I realize that he could try to sell them on eBay, but he’s just not up to the task. I was wondering if there’s any way to find interested collectors through your organization, especially someone living in the Houston area, where my father is currently living. Any information you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Alison Goolsby (firstname.lastname@example.org).
