Hi Benoit and all,
I constructed that very same seismograph in 1969 and believe that I did det=
ect earthquakes with it. I just didn't recognize the earthquake wave forms =
that we are all so familiar with now. There was no PSN in those days and I =
was on my own. I believe that it could be made into a workable seismograph =
(sensor) even though made of wood. My 14 year old son, shown in one of the =
pictures, is 52 years old now.

See my web page (url below) for pictures.  Click on "MY ANALOG SEISMOGRAPH =
IN 1969" (JUST BELOW THE PICTURE OF THE Shackleford-Gunderson seismograph s=
ensor near the bottom of the page).
