Shame! Was the housing dented/damaged? Maybe not all hope is lost...

Tell me about it ! When i saw the shape of the box i knew It was screwed , the seller did refund me for it though and was VERY apologetic, What really sucks is about 2 weeks ago he sold what looked like a mint cast housing OV-20 for $50 ! apparently it survived shipping!

Didn’t the seller have two Joslyns? One sold, and another got relisted and sold.

Cool, go for it. Worth fixing. I’m guessing clear epoxy might do the job.

Actually there was just one! I bid on it to $75 and got outbid at $87. Two days later it was re-listed at $79 because the high bidder backed out and I bought it then and there !
If I'd known how it was going to be packed I'da drove there and picked it up myself ! (the seller is about 1hr+ 45 min from me!)

I bought it for 87.50 but asked the seller to cancel the transaction. I thought it would end up like this.

Sadly seems like your suspicion was correct. Short of having a glass shop make a new refractor from the pieces, this can't be replaced either.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I bought a GE M-400 clam shell and the glass is cracked. Tried three early GE's but the lip is too thick for the lower housing to close properly.

just bought some JB weld 4400 psi clear epoxy, lets see what happens !

Hopefully all the kings horses and all the kings men (and alot of epoxy) can put this humpty-dumpty back together again !
