Hi, im tiMboblocky and I need help finding a film prop!

I’m making a documentary film about Bill, my 90 year old friend, he was born without a fibula and he talks of wearing callipers, I’m wanting to add to my film images of the past and one of the items I remember were the collecting boxes of kids with callipers outside shops, I’m hoping that you might be able to help me locate one to photograph.
Kind regards,
Timothy [moderator removed - personal details]

    I googled ‘calliper collection box’ and found this one, there were a few others too. You may find one by googling vintage collection boxes or even one on a selling website? Best wishes.
