I’ve already begun looking for an original replacement. I did find a nicely priced 1958 Melita bridge & base that has my attention, for not much more than a new Compton. I’ve played a melita a few times and it definitely would take some getting used to. We’ll see, so many options! I’ll probably stick with the space control for the time being. The nice thing about bridges is that I can always just put the original back on if needed.
