We got our start in 1997 with doing restorations of antique violet rays for friends.  As I’ve written before, I saw my first violet ray in a kink scene 1n 1979.  My then-husband, whom I met and married in Germany, had introduced me to the finer pleasures of the flesh to be had in Europe’s red light districts.  I could do without a lot of it, but that first sighting of a violet ray lighting up the room knocked my stockings off.

When in later years I hooked up with my current genius-hub, it was a match made in heaven.  He knew the machines inside and out, and I knew what that they could do.  He rebuilt mine, then we began doing the rebuilds for friends.  Just one year later by 1998 we were selling our full violet ray rebuilds on the web. While few people knew about violet wands at that time, they still would leave our hands as fast as we could restore them.

One of the most common things we saw in restoring violet rays, were roach egg cases and dead roaches inside the electrical boxes.  I think its because roaches would feast on the animal based glues that were used, and the beeswax and rubber.  And they had 70 years to munch on them as these old machines sat in attics and basements.  The work required to restore an antique violet ray so it can be SAFELY used for violet wand techniques is enormous, and we still have an inventory of some 150+ antiques that we do not have the time to put into making them as beautiful and SAFER than they were when they were made.  They need to be made safer when doing a rebuild because they’d never pass safety standards the way they were originally made.  There are currently several professional violet ray restorers in the UK, and we know of only ourselves in the US.

I though you might enjoy seeing some of our early restorations as these are our roots.   This is just a selection of our rebuilds that were sold online as most pictures have been lost to the years in between.  But among them is a gem, a sighting of our first (and THE first) body contact cable. Prior to its invention, all body contact techniques were done with lengths of ball chain.  See if you can spot it!
