I have two of these - the original one (that you have) with the metal body & (AFAIK) slightly overscale & the later one with the plastic body. The earlier ones always had the primary gear made from some sort of mazak - best to change to the brass one.

Needless to say that the earlier one outperforms the later one & not a traction tyre in sight.

Nice ones in the original boxes still fetch very good money too.

Here is a bit of tip. My friend who did them for me used double sided tape stuck on his bench and solders them while these tiny LEDs are stuck on to them. Also with a huge table magnifier.

That's one of the best tips I've seen for a while - thanks.
