    It's a classic deck from a vintage marque, and it could easily have ended up in a skip. Doesn't matter who does the nuts and bolts, it's the fact that someone is the driving force, the spark, behind getting it restored. At least that is how I look at it. It's a zen thing, man

    Well done with this endeavour Andrew. I'm learning it's not as straight forward as you'd think doing these projects and my Toshiba jobby wasn't smashed to bits to start with. The woodwork I love but the old electrics and brittle wires that let loose I hadn't bargained for. I'm very much looking forward to seeing your Yamaha when finished.

    No offence Adam, just joshing.


    I did consider fettling the arm myself as I’ve done plenty but this is an important deck in the collection and I wanted it done the way only J7 knows how.

    However, on the plinth front, I know my limits and, sadly, woodwork is quite a way past them!

    i wasn't having a dig at you, just thought it funny when someone said well done and you're farming the work out. Actually well done for saving it Adam.
