RESTORATIONS PRICE LIST FOR 4-2021 . 

Many restorations available for different Turntables . I mainly restore 

Pioneers and Marantz . 

Note on previously serviced & tampered with 570 & 530 TT . If you have had a shop work on a 570 or 530 . Please let me know before hand .  A untouched 570 usually takes 2 hours to 

assemble . Incorrect work , previously performed . Can take a few extra days . Or weeks . And can

cost extra . Considering a greatly increased period of work time . Thanks . 

Note: On Veneers . I use Raw Wood veneer . It's wood on both sides . There's no paper or self 

adhesive stick-on . People will clamp the the self adhesive with wood glue . But if you sand into it , apply water . You will get a bubbles . Bubbles occur with self adhesives . It's the wood being withdrawn from it's very thin paper backing . I found this out by re-restoring Ebay reject restorations . Often times , the Base has to be tossed . You can't clamp down pre-existing bubbles . By using real Veneer . There are no bubbles , sand throughs or seams . The woods are pressed together with immense pressure . Hence , creating a perfect seam . The whole idea , is to make the Turntable "Look" like it came from the factory . That's what I have always strived for . And have solid , working system down .  All bases finished with high quality smooth lacquer finish .
