I would here express my indebtedness to one of natures gentlemen; Bob Burns. He is the restorer and keeper of the original Time Machine movie prop which is in residence at his private museum in Burbank, California.
When I wrote to him telling of my desire to produce a scale “working” model made from the indicated materials, i.e. brass, copper, wood, crystal, etc., he kindly invited me to come and take any measurements, detail and photos that I may require.
I was made welcome by he and his wife Kathy during the three evenings spent in his company with the Time Machine. He assembled and set it up for me as it was stored in three crates in back of his house, his museum not having been built yet.
Bob holds Time Machine model Number 1 given with appreciation and gratitude.
