Transcription turntable

This came in without a mains cable and looks like it’s had very little, if any previous use. It’s in wonderful condition and the rubber mat’s aluminium centre still has the protective film in place. There is some light mottling on the paintwork, but this doesn’t really show-up on the pictures and we haven’t attempted to clean it off.

We connected a mains cable to test. The motor runs smooth & whisper quiet, the bearing is fine and freshly lubricated, the idler is excellent, all three speeds are accurate and stable, pitch control works as it should and all linkages are nice and smooth and in gleaming condition. On 33 RPM this reaches stable speed in around one third of a revolution.

The motor clamp is present and will be used for safe shipping.

This is currently operating on 220 - 250 volts / 50 cycles. Conversion to 110 - 125 volts is really simple, but 60 cycles operation will require a replacement motor pulley (usually easily available via eBay)

If requested we can convert this to 110 - 125 volts prior to shipping (free of charge).

This will be supplied to its new owner with original fixing nuts, bolts and washers, along with a full size copy of the mounting template. We do have a copy of the user manual as a PDF on our computer which we will be happy to email to the new owner on request.
