Carol,
         Contact Alan Bright of Bright Cryostats, his latest instrument is 
a joy. Why am I so confident.
1.) My 1974 Bright cryostat is still perfect.
2.) Service record. It doesn't have one, the instrument has never gone 
down. After 26 years this must be a bit of a record.
3.) Maintenance. Apart from an internal clean, nothing.
4.) The original guide plate is still in use. How many other manufacturers 
can make that claim.
5.) Anything I don't like, it's to bloody reliable, I want the latest version.
Ian.
