The problem arose last year. To conserve battery life, it has to be removed.

(Cleaning everything did not provide a cure )

Machine D R O said that they could supply a replacement head, and I arranged to collect it at Alexandra Palace.

Was told that it was not available, as supplies had only just arrived arrived and had not yet been booked in. Paid for it, to be posted when released into stock.

Further enquiries produced the response that supplies had NOT arrived, but were expected April 1st

In April was told that supplies would arrive 1st June.

Have just been told that there is an issue with the manufacturer, and that the item is no longer available, so will be refunded.

Is there anywhere else in UK where a replacement read head can be obtained?

Would it be feasible to buy a cheap digital calliper and move the head over onto the scale on my Tailstock?
