  1. opus5150 - Thanks so much for your input. Yeah, I saw that one also but simply based on appearance it doesn't quite seem to be what I'm looking for. I have a distant friend with a totally complete seat ( a seat used for training rescued from trash when our T-33 unit was being decommissioned) who will be getting me the number eventually. He has his seat in storage and just needs to find the time to get to it. Thanks again!
  2. I've only seen the attached 1950s poster once, recently displayed at the AF Museum near Dayton. I'd love to get my hands on an authentic original copy but might be interested in a reproduction as well. Any information on this would be great (not even the museum knew who the artist was). The poster has "going up - go air force" at the top and "BE AN AVIATION CADET U.S. AIR FORCE" at the bottom with T-33 and pilots in the main field. Some others have (I believe mistakenly) identified the planes as F-80s. To me, I clearly see a two-seater as well as the fact that the T-33 would have been appropriate for aviation cadets while the F-80 would not.
  3. Thanks so much for the suggestion!! I'm actually quite familiar with the website but never noticed your referenced page! It's a great lead, thanks! Fig
  4. I've posted before - I'm restoring a T-33 ejection seat. For the variants that have a man-seat separator, does anyone know the nomenclature, manufacturer, part number or any other identification for the associated rotary actuator?

  6. (Bob, I recently emailed you directly) I’m having a heck of a time finding two important pieces for my parachute restoration. They are: Less important, but desirable would be: Anyone have suggestions other than the obvious (EBay, etc)?
  7. You help is immeasurable! Gave me exactly what I needed and I'm so very grateful!
  8. Thanks Derek I wish I could take the credit but I obtained the seat in great condition and enlisted the aid of a professional restorer (mostly of toys). I've spent years looking for real initiators without luck. The ones I used are a combination of solid resin (no movement) and 3-D printed (with moveable actuators). You can see more of it here: https://www.facebook.com/Hoosierboy.Restorations/videos/257854295216617/
  9. RWW - unbelievably kind, thanks! The automatic version 50C7025-20 would certainly be a huge asset, even if it's not exactly identical to my chute. You can send it to mfeigenblatt@gmail.com SO very grateful!
  10. I ejected from a T-33 in 1981 and now have a restored ejection seat. I want to add a parachute as well. I have various parts of an SA-20 seat-style parachute that I wish to restore but need help - a manual would be ideal but anything would be appreciated!

  12. Don't know if you're still looking for replica initiators, but some years back I purchased some through the link below. I have no idea if they're still in business. http://ejectionseat.topflightimaging.com/replica_initiators.html
  13. WOW! I've been searching high and low for years - I've been restoring a T-33 ejection seat (like the one that saved my life). Where did you find the Zero Delay Lanyard?????
