The Turntable Doctor (aka The Vinyl Idiot)

The problem with buying job-lots of old records and turntables (even when for next-to-nothing): 160 records of which I am throwing away 130, keeping 20 which will probably never get played, and only 10 that I will play (if one of them is not too badly scratched). So maybe 9. And the beautiful Thorens turntable does not have a belt (R250), headshell (R250), cartridge and stylus (R450) and has a bent spindle (cost to fix unknown, but definitely expensive). So by the time I sell this for R2,500, I would have spent just over R2,000 on it - not counting my many, many hours of labour! What a mug's game... at least I have a bottle of Amy merlot to make me happy! ‪#‎vintage‬ ‪#‎vinyl‬ ‪#‎turntable‬ ‪#‎idiot‬‪#‎redwinesavestheday‬
