Why on earth don't they all come with them?

There is a good reason, however I'm afraid it's probably not something I can talk about publicly.

Kind regards,
James

I've added the chrome bookholders to keep large books open, which naturally insist on wanting to close themselves.

My CA63 is satin black, so the chrome ones match the silver lettering nicely.
Brass ones are also available.

It was a bit scary drilling the pilot holes, but with careful measuring and a steady hand (my son's) it was fine.

They can easily be swivelled into position when needed and swivelled flat when not.

OH! That will impinge on it`s resale value . . . ! Maybe the guarantee too. But if it`s what you want, I`d ha done the same . .

It should add to the resale value - I've improved it!

Not that I intend selling it smile
