Is anyone able to identify this tonearm?

Hi
I recently picked up a Rek-o-Kut turntable and on it is the tonearm below. It appears to be mono (due to the single wire coming from it) and I can't see any model or make other than the big "A" logo on the top. I am assuming (possibly wrongly) that this isn't a ROK tonearm (due to the logo). Can anyone identify it?

Thanks in anticipation..

It reminds me of an Audax, but that's just a wild guess. Here's a nice link Audax tonearms + other mono era tonearms.

During a chance encounter on Ebay I answered this for myself.

It's made by Astatic - the logo was almost self explanatory really.

Astatic are predominantly a microphone company from Ohio but presumably offered other products.
