    New Technics SL-1100

    Found this turntable yesterday on eBay. The seller was local and the price was right.

    I was a little dusty and has a bad scratch on the cover. I also accidentally bent the stylus shank. Luckily Shure V15 Type 3 stylii are reasonably priced.

    Its in really nice condidtion so the extra 50 bucks I need to invest in a stylus plus some polishing magic will get it looking it really nice.

    I know its not hifi related but here is a photo of something else I had to polish to a glasslike finish.

    Sprags,

    Nice looking Technics and guitar. One can find good deals on The Bay every now and then. I got some good deals on my Thorens, Dual, and Rega on there. After some elbow grease, and maintenance, they are all looking great and sounding awesome.

    I know what you mean about bending the cantilever. I actually snapped off the cantilever of a Ortofon Concorde that was mint and hardly had any hours on it with a Swifter as I was dusting the turntable. I learned to never dust a turntable WITHOUT first taking the stylus out of the cartridge or removing the cartridge altogether whenever possible! An expensive lesson...
