Looking for Stamov Relatch Hook

From: Pete McQuade

Pete McQuade would like to buy one or more Stamov Mechanical relatch servo towhooks for F1A.  The version I currently have is from 2008 .  (I.e., it does NOT use a strain gage to determine hook unlatch.)  A newer version of Stamov e-hook that would work with a Magic Timer might also fill my need.   Please contact:  PeteMcQA2@aol.com
