So I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but my stereoscope was quite poorly made, and the reel itself came damaged. On top of that, when I put the reel in and started flipping through the photos, after five flips, the stereoscope mechanism shattered. It seems odd to me since that was packed pretty tightly and in its own box, but I'll have to ask for a replacement. Sigh.
Having used many a View-Master in my youth, I was definitely using it correctly. The reel itself was badly dented in one part and I had a feeling that it might get caught as I was flipping through, but I didn't expect the whole thing to shatter as I was pulling the lever.
View Masters were the best. Did you ever see the Talking View Master? A huge thing! In my youth that particular model did not exist, and my imagination did the job quite well. View Masters instilled in me a love of stereoscopic photography that persists to this day. For those who share that interest, may I suggest you look here: www.londonstereo.com/
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
