I think Bruce Wegmann or Hanno would be able to put a kit very similar to that together.
Mostly I manage to pick up any parts I require individually on eBay.

Interesting mix of parts in the pic; the wrench and case seal look to be for a P3; the magnet is for a P4 or Ladies' model. My sense of scale might be a bit off...I guess this could be for a P4 (though the batteries are RW22s (the P3 or P4 would use RW44s). And no, I don't have one of these...I missed the only one that showed up on eBay a couple years ago.

hey,

Thank for your reply, I’m mainly interesting by the case opener for my P3 and my P4.
On Ebay, you just find a big case opener like the next picture.

If I buy the small case opener it’s easy for the seller to put it in an envelope but for the big case opener the problem for me it’s about the taxes import in Norway : 25% :nikolaus:

Very interesting pic...this is a Service Center case wrench. They were never intended to be sold to the public; they were custom-made for Time Computer for use in-house. Even the knob is a custom injection-molded part, which required a special-made steel part. These are quite different from the cylindrical wrenches that WERE offered to watch purchasers. My guess is that only a thousand or so of these were made (and distributed to the 80 Service Centers scattered worldwide); that would be about the lifetime of the injection mold for the plastic part. I'm also guessing that there are barely a hundred or so of these still in collectors hands; most of them were probably binned (along with SO much else we would kill to have now!) when the Service Centers closed.
I have a complete set of these, that were Eddie Ratcliff's personal set, when he ran the Repair Department at Time Computer.

I acquired two of these last year off EBay for the P2 - P3 & P4
I would much prefer the one shown above too.
