What's the point of going through the process of listing something and then never responding??? What a jack ass.

After restoring my 721, I thought the 621 would make a nice cold weather project. Top side looks unmolested and complete. When he says 300rpm, I'll bet it's only 66rpm.

I have a couple Duals I'll likely never get to if you are looking for winter projects.

Perhaps. Maybe I can bring you some records and a Harmony remote, or ??? Shoot me a PM sometime.

LOL, life has been so hectic that I forgot all about that remote.   I need to see Jim too so I'm going to have to find a day that I cam spend in the deep south of Allegheny County.

net property taxes are about 35% less, which is why Peters suddenly grew up. The first community (south) outside of Allegheny County. We are now as large as the city of Washington PA.

Bit of a rant here...I've been using a Technics SL1400MK2 in the living room for a few years, nice sounding table. Couple weeks ago, the speed started drifting. Being a QUARTZ Locked table means you're #$%@'d. Cracked it open today and I'm amazed at the huge circuit board in it. Without an oscilloscope, not much I can do there. Button it back up and while I'm hooking it up I had an idea, instead of plugging the TT power into the amp (Kenwood KA7300) let's try it into the power strip. Interestingly, the strobe is now consistent and steady...BUT...NO SOUND!!! Switch input to the computer, nothing. At this point, I'm entering the anger zone. Troubleshoot a bunch of things and no changes. While I'm writing this, the amp is on my desk with no lid and the power on, a good five minutes go by and the relay finally clicks. Power down and put everything back together, another 5 minutes and everything is back to normal. I usually leave the amp on 24-7, until I get caps and time to tear it down I plan to just leave it on.

I can't wait til I can get out of Allegheny or PA for that matter.

I like it here.   This city has a great balance between culture and affordability.   I love Manhattan and loved Boston, but I certainly couldn't afford either.   If the air was clean this place would be nearly perfect.
