|Planchettes come in all different styles. Obviously, most have a viewing
window to show the letter or number selected. The first planchette windows
had brass needles hanging from their centers. Todays planchette windows
are simply all plastic. Other planchettes that lack a window entirely, must
simply point at the correct character on the board. My oldest planchette is
the one in the top row with the old Ouija Trade Mark stencil on it. It's
probably from around 1910. Most planchettes also have pegs that they sit
on. Some exceptions are the three on the left side of the bottom row. These
lack pegs and just have felt pads on the bottom to glide on.
