Radiomuseum has some info to download on the X-26 crystal cutter:

Lawrence.
Sure. Was just playing with a thought... downloaded the astatic head pdf. On the Meissner, the resistor and the capacitor goint to the cutter head, i think it is a 27kOhm and .1uf in series....the Astatic manual is referring to a 50kOhm coupled/ paralell with the .01 uf cap.. that is interesting...

will deal with the cutting head at very last...

Thanks Lawrence!
