Thank you,

muzza,

Thanks,that information was exactly what I was after.Even with the internet,it is sometimes
difficult to obtain information on some of the older european cartridges without human help.

No sweat W.C. - thats what books are for . I figured I could never own every cartridge type ever made but I could at least have the information about them , so I try to do just that . And then - why have that information and not share it ?

Pleased to be of help , any other queries - just ask and someone will know the answer....
