    Just got this swivel in and either it is a one piece base and housing, or it is so rusted and frozen the housing won't turn. It really looks like a one piece. Feels like a tank, with a big ball that sticks way out of the housing There is no shank exposed out of the ball so the eye-hook hits the housing. The eye that holds the "s" hook (very small narrow S) can hit on the side or flat part of the well housing.

    pics to follow when I get a chance. may need to try and de-rust the "iron".

    Hey Paranday...

    That swivel is still sitting on a shelf in closet. I never did anything too it yet. Have not tried to clean it or do anything to the finish for I don't want to damage it by amateur cleaning methods, which destroy more antiques than restore them. I seriously doubt the housing will screw off the base IF it is two pieces. The swivel ball housing almost looks like it is part of the board base, I don't see any sign of separation between them, unless it is seriously rusted shut. Right now the ball section is out of the housing and the Width of the "S" won't easily go back through the bottom of the housing.

    The opening on the "S" hook is so small even my most modest bag straps will need to be forced through the gap.

          In Texas you can go to jail for that. Better watch out I may bring this up again in a few years.

            OK, OK. you win.

            I'll move it to the other side of the shelf. Maybe I'll bring it to the New Jersey gathering and let "the gang" give their opinions.

                You may have seen my retro designs if you attended a gathering or two. I am a collector of vintage and do not replace the old with new unless its purely functionally necessary. I have a Nichols, NOS with box, I collect boxes and packaging also, with a mint condition. I wont mount that except for display. I do however have a retro fit Nichols that G-Town and his boys are testing and I have worked on swiv for Zaza. The plastic ball Nichols conversion is the most revolutting swivels I have ever designed!!! if that's even a word??!! Something like thirty revolutions per spin. Zero friction there, but the plastic ball I experiemented with was of cheap plastic so wearing is inevitable do to the Nichols design, which is great, that is why I preserve mine.
                Im currently hitting on a classic Speed Bag Ring from Hutchinson Bros. It may be worth a video or two but I have my beaters and my treasures.
                I have so many videos I need to share or get a publicist videographer.
                The speed bag gatherings are like show and tell and a present exchange with a Chinese auction Silent auction and everybody gives something to the New!!
