i removed the soundbox from the tonearm as it was rusted beyond repair.
this has definitely seen better days.
the motorboard housing, with every metal part rusted and every corner/hole clogged with dust
the spring motor, badly rusted and congealed grease
work is still in progress on this machine, which i have been told by an online forum that it was produced in 1954, which makes this gramophone nearly 60 years old. so far it refuses to stay fixed, with some other part failing once one other part has been fixed, but i will be very satisfied once it is restored to a respectable working order.
