Internally they're a rebadged Sulzer more or less. There's been one for
sale on eBay in the US for years, literally, at the somewhat ridiculous
price of over $3,000.
only now slightly reduced!
One might wonder what state the 21 NiCads are in after all those years
:^) And I couldn't sell my Sulzer for $50 at the swap meet, and that
had new NiCads.
They are remarkably stable if my Sulzer is anything to go by, and it has
a lovely mechanical fine frequency adjustment behind that multi turn dial.
