Default Cartridge donation/loan needed (MM)

For the MM stage I've been working on, I've been using my in-house MMs (Technics EPC100C Mk4 and A-T 150MLX), which are not exactly representative of the majority of stuff out there. Could some kind human loan me a Shure or Stanton? The stylus/cantilever condition is unimportant, it's really the electrical part that I need. So if you have a bunged up old 681 or M97 or whatever (maybe you snapped off the cantilever!) and you would like it to actually do someone some good, I have my begging bowl out.

Email is my handle here (my initials) at syclotron period com. Muchas gracias!

Still haven't gotten any yet, but I've been traveling so much, it wouldn't have gotten done anyway.
