Bear in mind that the first production run has zinc rot issues with the powered, and possibly the unpowered units. The journal boxes are starting to disintegrate just from poor quality metal used to cast them and those parts are no longer available to be purchased. But even if you could purchase them, they probably would start disintegrating after a while. My friend has the original set and it recently had those parts fail, and he can't operate the set anymore as those journal boxes are structural.

So you're probably just better off buying the upcoming production run if you don't want to deal with the zinc rot issue. I was gonna go down this route, but after hearing about the zinc rot issue from an eBay listing and seeing others for sale with the same thing. I decided against getting the old one... Just a heads up by the way, so you aren't surprised by the issue if you come across it in the near future.

I think there is a point of clarification here.  I believe he has the add-on set.  I offered to sell both, but did not want to get stuck with the Add-on set myself.  Kimber, perhaps you could clarify?
