New thread as this deck has recently been passed on to me form Quarknosis - thanks !

Original thread is here https://hifisubjectivist.org/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=48384 This thread is a continuation of that thread.

Here is a pic or two of the TT as picked up from Quarknosis

Quite a looker I think you will agree. Very 1970's and I love it. Looks much nicer than the fruitbox I am looking at now :grin:

Paul has done a lovely job of getting rid of the stains of the wood and generally cleaning things up.

Pic of the lovely arm with original headshell

The dust cover does have a few scratches on it - not sure yet what can be done about that.

Pic with the platter mat removed.....Quark replaced the lid hinges, so thanks for that Paul.

Pic with the platter removed - sharp tug needed to get it off the spindle

More to come. Please excuse my basic camera skills :epopc:

I've been lucky enough to have seen them from your first post Stu - odd that some members can't or couldn't. :?:

The images in the first post will not show for anyone now because I deleted the first links and did them all again. They should show on this page though.

If they are not showing for some then I really don't know what has gone wrong.
