Default Anglepoise on Castors

Hi all,

I've just got this Herbert Terry on castors in but it appears to be missing a few parts (photos attached).

I don't suppose anybody can help identify what is needed please?

Many thanks in advance!

There may be a couple of bolts and nuts missing that alter the friction the joints.
The extra holes are alternative anchors for the springs to adjust for the extra weight of the head assembly and lamp.

Looks like a missing cheese-head chromed set screw in fig 4 (might be a BA size); and a bronze / brass (?) spacer to match the one which is there, and a nut on the end of the pin, in fig 5.

Don't mind me asking - are the photos in your house, or a showroom for 'mid-century' furnishings?

cheers
Mark

There appear to be grommets missing where the flex comes in/out of the of the arms.
And maybe no earth connection, seeing the unsheathed type of flex used, which is exposed to touch, so there is room for improvement electrically if run on mains. (Or fit a 12- or 24-volt LED lamp and run it from a suitable power supply.)
