Ultrasonics are ridiculously priced - my friend built a killer machine
with a steam-table stainless tray and some purchased transducers (the
most expensive components) with a cabinet made from plastic sheet. If
you don’t have time or inclination,
contact Mike Fritz in San Antonio Texas.
He’s in business and rebuilds units - all around nice guy .

Also go to www.auctionwatch.com. You can search 300+ auction sites. 

You can get some good deals at other sites because they don’t have the
traffic of Ebay. I usually go Ebay though.

Hello Mary, This is maybe not exactly what you would like to hear,but
why don’t you think about going to an electronica technician and get
it repaired.The most important piece is the transducer which receives
the frequence (25 up to 42 KHz)from the electronics inside your
cleaner.As long as this piece works, you’re fine because the
electronic pieces do not cost thatmuch.Hope that you’re lucky.

Regards Pedro

I have to second that compliment for Mike Fritz. I bought an L&R
cleaner a couple of years ago and it didn’t work properly (at least I
thought) when I got it. I sent it to Lone Star for warranty work and
they seemed to beef it up somehow. Im still spoiled to my Elma unit
though. BTW, Mike do you still sell diamond dental bits?
