Hiya folks!

Incidentally: does anyone know why there is this cleat inside the turntable compartment? The 1-C didn't have a turntable trim-piece did it?

Best,
Fran

EDIT: I realize now that the cleat is merely a "blind stop" for the cabinet door, to prevent it from over-travel when closing.

Video is a few years old now... I should probably make a new HD video for posterity. I pretty much never play these long play discs (for good reason!).

Also, mine does have 10/12 buttons.


Hi phonophan79!

Sorry it took me so long to respond, my posts get buried pretty quickly sometimes, and I just got back to this one.

I don't have your 3-C on file (so to speak), would you be kind enough to take the entire survey on page 1 of this thread, I don't want to overlook anything?

In the meantime, I'll enter this info into my spreadsheet.

Thank you,
Fran

In the spirit of coaxing others to participate in the survey, I thought I should post here a picture of my now completed 1-C. It was discovered languishing in the basement of a home in which an estate sale had been conducted. Through the alert of one of our members (Edisone), I managed to track it down; my son and daughter-in-law were kind enough to pick it up for me and go out of their way to deliver it to me -- a round trip of about 120 miles.

I replaced the grille material with an accurate reproduction of my own undertaking, and I'm especially pleased for the way everything eventually turned out.

Best,
Fran

I saw this poor little guy before Fran's restoration, and I'd never know it was the same machine! A nice save, Fran. :)
