Looks amazing!! How/what did you use to clean the parts? Did any have to be replated?

I just used solvent and mostly rags. It's not perfect but it's very presentable. Thanks, Jerry

Very nice Graphophone AB, Jerry! Congratulations, one is on my (eventual) wish list.

Best,

Great job Jerry
Much nicer saving the original finishes, rather then doing the quick refinish we see so often.

Jerry, that is a beautiful job. Well worth the effort. I just completed 2 Amberola 30s that I completely detailed both cosmetically and mechanically, so I know how much work you put into that machine.

The fun thing is that many future generations of collectors will also appreciate your efforts with this. Cool!!
