Thanks. I will keep an eye out but tentec only made 400 of them and I
am sure many of those are in a scrap yard somewhere.
The company I found will make me one but they have min order of 180
and 30 shipping. Or I can buy 5 for $51 each and shipping will be
around $300.
May have to part the old girl out. I am going to change the motor
drive IC as I have 15 of them in tubes. I have ordered a 24 narrow
socket so I will only have to solder once. I have heard of failures of
the driver chips so maybe I will get lucky.
