Barry I don't know your particular variant. I have an Elmo-16F, so I assume yours may be a later model. The black TQIII is a much later model and in my opinion more superior. And spares are still mostly obtainable for it.

I have a black 1698 TQ111 in fabulous condition and they are hard to beat. The one downside is the worry of the wormgear, which can be replaced, but an expensive repair. If it ever failed I'm sure I would get Kevin Brown to do the job because it is definitely worth the expense and would keep it running for many years to come.
