Could your unit be an AL-1KT, perhaps? I have one of those, but it uses a 1000W 3200K quartz lamp and is not much use for UV sensitive processes. I don't even remember why I have it. Must have come with something else. What do you use yours for? I also have an AL-19 (or maybe it's an AL-15) in storage that I intend to put back into service someday if/when I have the space again.
I can't find an AL-1KS listed in any Olec literature that I have or find any reference to it online.
I did find a listing for an AL-83 <http://www.ebay.com/itm/Douthit-Plate-Burning-Frame-and-Olec-light-/322492623874?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368> with integrator, vacuum base and curtain on eBay for $650 obo which could be a very good deal for someone in the Houston area looking for a high-power unit with a large vacuum frame especially if the seller really is willing to negotiate.
There's also a NuArc 26-1K <http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nu-Arc-26-1K-8LC-Mercury-Exposure-System-with-Light-Integrator-Vacuum-Bed/282532009854?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid=222007&algo=SIM.MBE&ao=2&asc=45041&meid=ddc9a544603b4582b0b1c0660621e2b4&pid=100005&rk=1&rkt=2&sd=322492623874> in Madison, NJ for $200.
Sorry for linking to used units, Jennifer, but others may be interested.

>>> Hello list,
>>> For the past 10 years I’ve been printing with a homemade BLB exposure unit with a Gralab timer. I recently had the opportunity to print with a NuArc exposure unit and it was FABULOUS! I really enjoy the light meter that is built in for exposure consistency and the vacuum frame. I believe that NuArcs are no longer made. I would like to buy a new (not used) machine just like the NuArc, does anyone know if something like it is made today?

>> I have an Olec AK 1KS among other Olec units. I use it with an Olec Integrator AI-131. It looks like Olec has been absorbed by a company named Fabcon, at least that's what www.olec.com redirects to. Lots of used units around, and FWIW I've always found Olec products well designed and very functional. Good luck.
