Simplex action from a Starck of Chicago player:

Pictures of the Simplex action from a Starck player that I worked on recently.  

Pictures lower down the page show details of the stack being dismantled and the pneumatic / valve units typical of this system. They make for difficult valve travel adjustment  but easy removal if there is ever a problem.


The tracker mechanism after cleaning up and reassembly works beautifully. Very responsive and efficient.

Regulating the player action.
