I picked up a Laborator 1000 last weekend. Not bad condition plus it came with a 80mm componon and a RR Beard easel (scruffy but usable) all for the princely sum of 20 pounds!
There are two pieces missing. The easily identifiable piece is the top of the lamp housing which I can get a part made for. There is one part missing on the condenser housing which looked like a thin panel held in by two screws. Behind this panel is a slot, well actually two. I would assume these slots are for VC filters. One is directly in front of the lamp housing the other at an angle. Could anyone confirm what these are for as I would dearly love to get this old gal up and running.
