I collect and do simple repairs/maintenance for myself and others in my area.   The internet has made that part of the hobby so much easier.    When I was just starting out in the mid 1960s, it was not easy to find parts.  I don't know that anyone had a stock of repro parts either.

Just so we aren't accused of being too irrelevant, How many of you have worked on old phonographs?

I am currently restoring a Victrola VV-Xa. I think it's from 1918. When it's done it going back to the thrift shop for sale.

It was slathered in shellac, but underneath the thick, black gook is a beautiful finish. I never worked on one before and it's been a great deal of fun doing archaeology on it. I found a  fellow in Florida who has all the parts. It really doesn't need much. The veneer is all here. 
I am on the assembly side now.

I can't wait to hear it make music again. By Sunday, I think it will be ready to play.

Lovin' old technology!
