Shoulder rest
« on: January 22, 2012, 04:28:26 PM »
Looking for or info on the add on shoulder rest for the G hand set, made by H.H. Renneker in San Diego,CA. Yes these will fit a F hand set too.

Looking for them or info on what colors they were made in.  I have Black, Green, Brown, White, and Beige. Lt. Blue is shown in a book, but I don't have one.

I don't know if they were made in the other colors or not. 

What do others know or have ??

Hello Vern,

I have one and I think it's a Renneker but I'm not sure. When I get home I will check the box.

Mine is black.

Vern, I have two made by Renneker.  One is for the F series handset and the other is for the G Series handset.  I took some photos and will upload them ASAP....most likely on Wednesday (tomorrow).

Here is a series of photos of the 3 shoulder rests brackets that I have, Vern.  One of them is an off-brand (the green one). There are in "as removed from service" condition.  I obtained them on phones that I purchased off eBay.

Both the Red and Black are marked H.H. Renneker.  The Red one (as you can see) has a Canadian patent but has a San Diego address.  The Black one does not mention Canada.  The Black one is more "V" shaped for the F series handset.  The Red one looks more like it was made for the G series.

The box reads 'Black unless otherwise stamped' so no information about the available colors.

Thanks Dennis, Yes this is the one I am talking and look for.

I too have some off brands ones. In Beige and Black.

As for the one for an F hs, the one I have is made of pot metal.  Is your too ?

The Red type, is the one I am looking for in colors I don't have, or what colors they were made in.  These will fit a F or G hs.

All of these types will not work on a E1 hs. has any one seen shoulder rest for a E1 hs. ?? I have not.

Dennis, you missed my BD last year. Since you are so MUCH older than me, you could be nice to me and send me the Red one. :<)

PS: The off brand ones I have are looking for a new home.

Just some more info about these.  The 1st one for the F1 hs that is pot metal has Pat. Pend. and number on it on it, with no date.

The next one has Pat. 2,863,945 number. Along with Canada Pat. 599,727 number.

The last one has model 300, no US Pat. but has the Canada number.

All have the San Diego,CA PO adress on them.

Thanks to Dennis for posting a photo of the shoulder rest I am talking and looking for.  Have not seen any more about these from others.  Yes, I am still looking for them, have stuff to trade or cash.

Still need to find a trade for the Red one.
