Hi John,

A number of "Lehman" seismometer related articles and drawings
is already available on the PSN web site, you can download and
review.  See:

"Often", individually one has to adapt whatever material they "can"
obtain or convert for use in relation to this type of instrument.
There is other approaches that seem to be better (or more
complicated), but they may yield better results.  Personally, I'd
suggest a more simplified version of the Shackleford-Gunderson
horizontal seismometer as a better approach for a "first
seismometer", and then if you're up to it; perhaps trying the
more complicated versons later.  Of course, this is only a
