The console is detatched from the main case and positioned in front of the Ruckpositiv. The entire tracker mechanism is of metal.
Phenolic-base plastic is used for the sliders operating in conjunction with telescopic hulls.
A heavy welded steel framework supports the chests and casework, maintaining correct spacing for tracker and slider mechanism at all times.
