As it happens we have been playing around with an old Sondor Oma 3,
it works but there are a couple of things that I am not very keen on,
firstly the shuttle speed is on the slow side with a 20-30 sec re-lock 
time behind the TK and secondly the mag doesn't lift off the head when 
spooling which would really get to me after a while.
I take it your units don't have the relock problem ?

Thanks for all the replies on this subject
