The OVIC show held last weekend near Ottawa, was a bit smaller than usual this year. Some familiar faces were noticeably absent but new faces and names helped fill the void. I picked up two newer Lapp suspensions, 1992 and 2001. I tend to think of Lapp insulators as all being a pumpkin colour. So a white and a brown are nice additions to the display. The brown disc has a different shaped cap from all other Lapps. I believe this is because Lapps are now made in China. The string of Locke's came with a surprise - each one is marked differently.
