Firstly, apologies if this has been posted/answered before.

The question is: where can I buy replacement "zipper flippers" for my Medusa project? I don't even know if that's the right name for upper set of flippers, but marco doesn't seem to have them available.

Any thoughts of nudges (in the right direction) would be very much appreciated!

If you get a new set of the metal shaft and flipper base (not the plastic) make sure it's got the groove on the flipper shaft for the pawl to bite into. I made the mistake about 20 years ago on mine when I had it with ones that were smooth and it made it so you couldn't remove the flipper shaft at all.... had to hacksaw it off. Cheap parts then....

These are just old short flipper bats. "zipper flippers" refers to bats on a mechanism that moves and changes the (position) spacing between the flipper bats. Moving bats closer together, then back to further apart.
