Are there any stores that specialize in items needed to restore very old audio equipment? I have no idea how old this item is, except to say that the turntable is built like nothing I've seen before. I can take pics tomorrow, and send them here shortly after, but I was just wondering if the typical home improvement stores would have what I need, or should I look elsewhere?

Yeah, unfortunately, you'll have to source parts from the web, so it might be tough to determine what you need without a professional giving it a look. Sadly, there aren't many brick and mortar shops that specialize in repairing and refurbishing antiques anymore.

Yeah, brick and mortar has gone online. There was probably a huge surge of businesses making that change back when Covid first hit.

I'm looking forward to those pictures, buddy. I'm a fan of the old stuff.

I'm looking forward to those pictures too!

We get busy and things get pushed back.

I'm semi-retired, so it will happen soon. I'm mainly intrigued by the turntable.
