It cost me $50.00 and they delivered it free. Had fun cleaning it up. Used mostly Goop non pumice type cleaner. Shined so nice did not need oil to shine. I tried restore a finish but did not work as well on this cabinet. Wish I could find a tone arm that was not crumbling. I have something else I'm using for now. If you have an original Sylvan tone arm I'd like to hear from you. I have the sound box. Here are some before and after cleaning. One of the crumbling arm.

Impressive cleanup. Sure wish I had the tone arm to help it move along a bit. Jerry B.

I enjoy seeing a new, (to me) off brand phonograph. There are so many out there and they are interesting. Good luck with your restoration.
