Hi there,

Just a quick question :

I haven't seen any others. I own a pegbar which I was told is from Russia, or at least from East Germany, but the measurements match those of the ACME pegbar.

Acme pegs and Oxberry pegs were the most common, although the vast majority of studios used Acme pegs. Disney switched from their own peg system to Acme pegs in 1986 (Acme pegs were copied from Disney pegs , but were set wider apart than the Disney pegs ; this is a way of identifying authentic Disney drawings and cels on movies prior to "The Great Mouse Detective (1986) , because forgeries of artwork from earlier Disney films often have the mistake of being drawn on paper or cels punched with Acme peg holes )

There was one other animation peg system in use called "Signal Corps pegs" , which was a peg system used by the U.S. Army Signal Corps in World War II for military training films, but then after the War many smaller animation studios purchased war surplus film equipment , including animation desks and cameras , that used the Signal Corps peg system.
