Trade my Loos PT-2 for your Loos PT-1?
I have a like-new Loos PT-2 tension gauge. My broker/friend gave it to me because his father retired from sailing and sold his Catalina 270. Unfortunately my Catalina 250 is rigged with 5/32" wire, which requires the Loos PT-1 gauge. The PT-2 is designed for 3/16"-1/4" wire, with a stiffer spring appropriate for the higher tensions that this wire can support.
I hope that there may be someone here who has upgraded to a larger boat who may have a PT-1 and be looking for a PT-2. If so, I am your man.
Please only reply if you have the Loos Professional series gauge (PT-1). I am not interested in their regular 91A tension gauge.
I can supply pics of the gauge to help you verify its pristine condition. It will help if you do the same.
For those of you who don't know whether you have the PT version, here is a stock photo from the Loos website:
