Boxing Day Blues

Boxing Day Blues... Not! Finished this beauty today - stripped to the last bolt, nut and washer, cleaned and lubricated, re-assembled, new parts fitted, missing parts added, unobtainable parts made, top plate and platter resprayed, and the table and 12" AT arm properly set up and adjusted. Motor opened up and serviced, idler wheel put on the lathe and skimmed. New spark suppressor imported from the UK and fitted. Plinth sanded, sealed, waxed and hand-rubbed. Speed 100% stable on 33.3 - not bad for a 1954 model! And she sounds great... ‪#‎vintage‬ ‪#‎vinyl‬ ‪#‎garrard301‬

Before - stripped, ready for a respray

A picture to help me remember where what goes...

That's all Folks!
