    It's not as bad as what it looks, I've restored worse. Deep breath, shirt sleeves rolled up, crack on. Adam, good luck.

    Quick update - shiny new lid has arrived, motor is being fettled today and the arm has arrived safely in johnnie7ís secret lair.

    Most importantly, Iíve had word from the woodworking company that my brother-in-law took the plinth to - it is salvageable and is going into the workshop to be repaired next week!

    I thought somebody could fix that. Very good.

    You have earned my respect! That is quite an undertaking, I think it would look awesome in rosewood, but glad youíre getting the plinth repaired, for the sake of preservation. Best of luck with it!

    Sometimes it's better to know your limits than overestimate them. I've restored more decks than I care to remember. I've learned to get somebody in if your not sure about something.

    So true, you canít beat a man at his own game. You are the project manager, you see that the correct work gets done. Thereís nothing wrong with exploiting the talents of a talented craftsman to complete your goals! I canít wait to see it finished, a turntable is among just a few man made things that have an inherent beauty. Like guitars, motorcycles and sport cars.
