    #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.

    #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.
