#11 Transcriptor Hydraulic Reference

#11 falls probably just in the transition between Gammon / Michell as it has a Michell print, but Transcriptor badge. The Italian sticker on bottom indicates it was produced before aug 74. Has a different belt guide (eye) which might be taken (much later) from a Michell Focus to replace original.

#13 Transcriptor Hydraulic Reference

#13 falls also in the transition phase between Gammon / Michell, it has a Michell tag from 73, normally the letters represent the month (A=jan, L=dec) but this one starts with M.Platter seems to be a different material, coating of the platterweights is different, more silvery than gold.Lid is badged 71 HiFi show, not sure whether lid has been replaced, or if HiFi badges have been used long afterwards.Belt guide is later type with 2 pins. No fuse box.

#16 also appears to be an older type due to the belt guide with two plates and no fuse box, motor deck plate seems to be more solid material,platter has oblique rim on side, notice also the one piece square bent sidestrip.

#18 Transcriptor Dry Pitch-Hydraulic Reference

#18 Transcriptor Dry Pitch-Hydraulic Reference

#18 seems to be related to the early dry pitch. Came unbadged with a capstan that runs through the strobewheel with felt pad and nut on top, the particular strobewheel missing. Had a donut as well, so we used it as a HR. The other strobelight is consistent with the ones used on the other dry pitch # 2 and 9.Has also the belt guide with the two plates.
