    Hi thanks for posting this video, I did a complete overhaul of all the
    belts and re-furbed the rubber tyres, I also changed the pinch roller, pity
    I didn’t have a brass centre one but the new one is excellent as the old
    one had gone hard and barrel shaped, these old machines are so well made
    and utterly serviceable, a credit to the designers and manufacturers

    Any tips on fixing the pitch in this one? I replaced belts but still plays
    just a little bit slow.

    Any recommendations are welcome. Thanks for the video.

    You are absolutely right! i bought a set of indoor outdoor set of polk
    speakers for 30 bucks and they sound awesome..Also bought a Yamaha natural
    audio receiver for 15 bucks. I paired it with the polk speakers and i like
    how they sound. Hope to find a better cassette player than the one i have
    right now wich is a kenwood but newer model. Best wishes

    Vintage electronics are so much cooler than modern stuff.

    Also….what kind of cleaning solution did you use?

  13. 23v0lv32 says:

    totally. gets super addicting hitting thrift stores and getting excellent
    gear on the cheap and fixing them. their value only increases with each
    year as they get rarer
