Would anyone happen to have an ST1200 HD for spares?
I’m looking for a roller to replace the black tension arm in my GS1200. I’m prepared to pay generously!

Stuart, I think your talking about the part called The Mid tension assy! On the GS1200. I think that's the part near the bottom sprocket wheel! Its a black plastic part than floats on the film! If it is the right part I do have it in stock! Also I will check and see if I have any of the modified one with the rubber roller! I might have one or two left? I'll let you know! Leon.

Hi Mark.
This is the original Elmo part that needs to be replaced.
The preferred roller replacement (ideally from an ST1200HD) can be seen on the Xenon GS that Ian is currently selling.
I actually have two GS’s that could do with this mod. Why did they use such inadequate materials?!

That part is called The Mid- Tension Assy. It should have a Roller instead of plastic that wheres and will scratch film! I replaced that part on my GS with the roller. And it works just fine! It will never ware!
