You are correct, I listed my Olec 1K quartz.  Most of my alt-photo 
equipment is currently in storage so I just grabbed the listing from my 
database, while at work.  I do have an Olec AL 1KS w/ AI 111x 
integrator, which, like you, I never use.  I do have an Olec Olite AL9, 
Rev. F multi-spectrum unit that I use for non-silver.  I have a number 
of integrator and photocells for the AL9 including an AI-131 and AI-985 SC.

If you are looking for equipment don't just check ebay and CL.  Some 
suppliers and manufacturers are still around.  Douthitt in Michigan 
<http://www.douthittcorp.com/al53-al83.htm> has proven very helpful in 
the past for wide-ranging tools and parts from glass to vacuum pumps, 
for example.
