The OMAS one appears on this Confente: http://www.velo-retro.com/VRendez.jpgs/Confente.jpg

Hard to see in the photo, but not much to see either. Just a small cup at the top for the housing to sit in and a shaft that goes into the hole at the end of the brake caliper arm. Imagine a Campagnolo brake adjuster made of aluminum and missing the threading and the thumb wheel adjuster.

For the one I modified from a stock steel Campagnolo adjuster reread the description in the first sentence. It couldn't be made simpler.
