Restorations price list 5-20-2023

Please let me know first if 
someone has tried/or worked previously on the Turntable .  Ther may be added 

Note : I always use the original base you send in . Or if the base is too damaged . There is a good chance I will have a 

good used base to work with . I do not use new Ebay MDF Bases . MDF is a cheap medium to work with . And warps and

crumbles . Especially when exposed to water , or a damp environment . Over time the actual base can warp . And become

"Out of True" . Throwing off the geometry of the motor/platter to the tone arm .
