    I have never considered buying another to replace mine. It is a flawlessly engineered device that would cost many thousands if made today.
    In answer to an earlier question, it is a 'lubed for life' bearing.

    Similarly, mine was covered in nicotine stains when I got it. It had been stored for a long time since the untimely demise of its previous owner. I am so pleased I purchased it and then invested the time to clean and restore.

    Try as I might, the oil rilled mat has remained a conundrum and is a rare thing. The decades of centrifugalism have shifted the oil to the perimeter of the mat. No amount of gentle rolling, pressing or warm baths will shift it.

    well ive opened her up
    traced the 2 wires to the bulb back to a push on block connector,ive disconnected it and tested continuity to the working one which is fine and to the non working 33rpm bulb,i dont get continuity here so everything points to a blown bulb,phew!
    according to the diagram its a 6v 35ma bulb,it measures 12mm x4mm is that commonly known as a grain of wheat bulb?

    With a lot of help from Charlie, I managed to get the deck set up today. More pics and info in my gallery thread.
