Former LEGO ambassador and LEGO zealot as a whole. If I could give negative rep for people writing "Legos", I would. It's going to be very hard not to suspend any offender though.

comment How to make a 1 ldu offset?
Your last statement is right on the spot, and there is one such element. (Also, note that for a 2 ldu gap, the erling brick alone isn't enough as it only has dimensions that are multiples of four. That's why you need a half-brick (10 ldu) offset too, which is what the jumpers are for in my picture)

Philo's pump is great but blocks now and then, but that's part of the GBC joy, and considering it's one of the oldest GBC modules in existence (that hasn't had parts replaced), it's actually quite resilient. By the way, if you want to see Philo or a great GBC display, I heartily recommend Fana'Briques, end of June in Rosheim (France).

GBC'ers always call that "pump". Tha main characteristic of it is that balls are pushed (pumped) through a column, so the mechanism has to support the weight of a whole column of balls. A lift usually only supports the balls it's lifting. And for all intents and purposes, a stream of balls could even be considered as a fluid.

comment Are Samsonite gears compatible with modern Technic gears?
I had some doubts on the "samsonite" issue but I just assumed the question was correct and didn't bother to check. My mistake.

comment How to make a 1 ldu offset?
Sounds ingenious, but I'm not entirely convinced. It's nearly like a continuous solution (I'm looking for a solution with pure stud connections), and the calculations must be horrible.

The visible holes are spaced like studs on plates, so the largest red one is larger than a 2x10 brick.

You may want to include close-up pictures of the real windows too if you can find some.

comment How to make a 1 ldu offset?
The fact that bricks are slightly shorter is not in my opinion a valid solution, as the distance between studs is what will ultimately be of importance. However, your idea using Technic bricks could actually work. I didn't think of that, but I have to admit it would be quite clever, not to mention you can go to 0.25 ldu offsets which is even better. See if you can work it out as an answer by having two red 2x4 bricks with a 1 ldu gap in between!
