I had six of these at one point, glad to say the habit was kicked and I'm now down to two
As you're a subscriber to the library, don't forget there's lots of service data ready and waiting for you should you need it and dial scans.
Edit: You may or may not know, the UL46 is a direct swap for the UL41 if you find yours is duff. The UL46 is better in my opinion as its is a ruggerdised version and the other benefit is its cheaper ( for now).

Never heard a 90 version. The 90A can be made to sound better by changing the value of the tone correction cap. No doubt you and others already know that. Others that don't then have a play and you will be surprised how much better they can be made to sound.

I've found that after polishing the case with Bakelite polish, giving it a good going-over with an appropriately matching colour of Cherry Blossom shoe polish not only brings it up to a brilliant shine, but it helps the shine to last.
