Looking for info on O'connor Model C tripod.

Has anyone here ever heard of or used the O'Connor Model C fluid head? It's definitely an antique, but I think it's along the same line as the Model 30, or the 50d, but for smaller cameras. I'm sure it can't compare to the modern O'Connors(or can it?), but I imagine it would be better than a cheap Manfrotto. I'm trying to put together some decent kit for an extremely cash-strapped independent film project, and all signs seem to point towards going retro. If anyone with any knowledge of this head could chime in, I would be eternally grateful.

Yes, I just emailed O'Connor today asking about the specs, but have not received an answer just yet. ....
I think Transylvania Film & TV services the old O'Connor models.
Worth searching the web for people interested in old O'Connor also.
