Wanted : PSU for elk data recorder

Anyone got an original psu for the elk style data recorder?

Thinking may as well keep it all original if anyone has one they no longer need.

Thanks

Probs be a few weeks till collect but will catalogue it all and i guess may be lucky and there may be some gaps in educational archive we can fill.

Haha! That makes more sense :) The internal 6502 is working well, so hacking it for BBC/Master compatibility is definitely an option now.

Tbh how its been stored but I reckon it may be ok.

If left somewhere it was subjected to very low temps in winter etc may not do so well.
