For Sale: Tested and working vintage 1950's turntable.
YouTube video demoing working condition here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgYgeBY8ISw
Works on all three speeds and all controls and speed adjustments are working. It's pretty smooth and speed is steady according to the built in working strobe light/meter on 33RPM. On 45 and 78 there is some minor noise and vibration that I don't hear at 33.
Overall quite nice shape for an approx. 70 year old table. There is no tonearm (used to have a Grado Laboratory wooden tonearm on it) and there are some extra holes drilled in the wood side for the tonearm and tonearm holder parts, see photos. Wood base is in solid condition, not much wear. Motor, gearbox, and associated parts are nice and clean. Looks like it was well taken care of over the years.
Tons of info is available online for the rare piece of audiophile history.
