VINTAGE GARRARD 301 TURNTABLE
SME 3009 MK II TONE-ARM
Transcription Turntable / Schedule 51400/2
#63128
3-SPEEDS
Made in England
Circa 1954-1964 (this one is likely 1961-63)
for sale


This is pretty much the 'Holy Grail' for vintage turntables, and only the second we have had thru the shop in 19 years. This one is also a much better example than the first one we had back in '04. This one has the much coveted SME 3009 MK II tone arm (at the time advertised as; "THE BEST PICK-UP ARM IN THE WORLD"! and was the tone arm that was also typically spec'd for Connoisseur '2-spd' and Thorens TD-124 tables), and an optional, factory made wooden base. It also comes with an original ADC, Model ONE cartridge. It also has the typically optional, 'strobe marked' platter. It's pretty much got 'ALL THE NUTS'! FINALLY, our current senior technician was up to the task, and refurbished this one beautifully and CORRECTLY! (he actually owns the same version Garrard 301, with the exact same tone-arm. He loves restoring / working on these old British Machines!)
ü Our technician has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through and 'Certified' this unit which involves disassembly (not an easy task on this table), cleaning inside and out, COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLING, cleaning and re-lubricating internal mechanisms and the balance of efforts listed below. Total technician time to restore 29 HOURS!

ü Table was completely disassembled down to the plinth  -

ü Internal mechanisms removed, disassembled, cleaned, inspected, refurbished as necessary, re-lubed as necessary and ultimately re-assembled 

ü Platter spindle bearing disassembled, cleaned, inspected and re-lubed.

ü Same was also done with the sintered, bronze bearing, which was still in fine shape.  -

ü Eddy brake actuator arm had all three iso springs replaced

ü Arm lift inspected / tested

ü Tone-Arm 'Bed Plate' has NEW, custom manufactured isolation / mounting rubber installed

ü SME 3009 MK II tone arm 'knife edge' bearing disassembled, inspected and cleaned
 
-



ü Rubber mat still supple and flexible with no hardening (does have a few of the typical, short, radial cracks from the spindle hole).

ü Platter drive motor disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled  -

ü Idler tire was 'crack free' and only required our normal 're-surfacing' -

ü While the platter speed was 100% 'spot on', it was at the end of the speed control's travel. We corrected this by adding to the original magnetics so that it's now 100% when the control is positioned in the 'CENTER' of it's range.

ü Platter speed checked and verified for 100% accuracy with our factory test strobe disc following above work.

ü Platter tested for 'true flat' and no 'run-out'.

ü We installed 24kt gold plated RCA jacks on the rear panel, and are including a pair of much better quality RCA interlinks (as opposed to the original and 'fixed' anemic cables)

ü We installed 24kt Gold Cartridge / head-shell leads instead of the 'as found' 'soldered-on' wires that were connecting the cartridge to facilitate cartridge changes / up-grades in the future.

ü AC line / Power cord was replaced

ü Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum.

ü Originally optional Audio-Vox wood veneer case lemon oiled and looks great

ü We also reinstalled and optimized the tone arm for the originally purchased / installed ADC, Model One, magnetic cartridge.

You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.

ü Cartridge / head shell ‘overhang’ adjusted using shop calibration scale.

ü Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record

ü Unit test cycled through MANY LP’s flawlessly

This was a 'one owner / consumer / audiophile' owned unit and was not used commercially. The only issues that we did not correct for was the single owner inscribed his id info on the plinth top and underneath and laterally on the tone-arm (see photos above).

GARRARD 301 SCHEDULE TURNTABLE SPECIFICATIONS:
    
Turntable Motor: Shaded Pole Induction in heavy cast casing, suspended on six tensioned springs. Magnetically screened.
Turntable Drive System: Idler Tire
Platter: 12", 6lbs, Die-cast, Accurately Balanced', 3-Speed Stroboscopically engraved (this was originally an upgrade for additional cost)
Speeds: 33 1/3, 45 & 78 RPM (adjustable)
Plinth Construction: Diecast Aluminum
Platter 'Spool-Up' time: 4-6 sec.
Pitch Control Range: +/- 3.5-4%

S/N - Rumble: "Almost non-existent"
Platter Spindle Bearing: Oil on Sintered Bronze bearing surface

SME 3009 SERIES-II SPECIFICATIONS:
Tone arm Type:
Angled Aluminum Pipe, 'Wood Lined' to reduce resonance. Tone-Arm on 'Knife Edge' vertical bearing mechanism. Lateral / Pillar bearings are "high precision" and totally enclosed against dust.

If you're looking at this then there's not much we can tell you that you likely don't already know. It is the "Oil Bearing" version, with the originally, optional / upgrade, strobe marked, 5 lb aluminum platter. And again, it just had the above itemized restoration and is ready to go. In BEAUTIFUL condition all around. Original White Enamel finish on chassis in great shape. The VERY SOUGHT AFTER SME 3009 Mark II tone arm is in equally great performing shape. The tone arm includes 'one' of the "Rider Weights". For excessively heavy cartridges, you may need to source an additional "Rider Weight" (not sure why anyone would want to run and 'excessively heavy' cartridge). Table comes up to speed in about 3-4 revolutions (very heavy 5 lb cast aluminum platter) and stays on. Motor runs perfectly and is "Dead" silent for noise. This table is likely from 1961-63, based on it's serial, and production quantities over the years this model spanned, and the edition of the manual. Based on the condition of the idler and the bronze bearing, it has seen little use in it's life. Owner took immaculate care of it and the entire system. Comes with all of it's original paperwork, including the 'brown, hard cover Garrard 301 Transcription Turntable Owners / Users manual, original Motor inspection report,  the SME 3009 mk II owners manual and alignment protractor, and the owners manual for the ADC Model One Cartridge and more!
Measures overall 17.5" wide x 15." front to back. Table has our standard 90 day limited warranty.

"This is one of the ‘coolest’ tables I’ve experienced"
We have had this table in the warehouse for over 10 years, waiting for the 'right technician' to ‘challenge’ it. Not only was, our current senior technician up to the task, and restored this one beautifully and CORRECTLY, he owns two himself that are his main tables, over his Thorens TD 145 mk2 and Garrard 301!

 This table is a 'blast' to use. As the owner of Oak Tree Enterprises, I personally auditioned and did the final testing on this table. I had a few further 'fine tune / tweaks' done by the technician and probably played more than 30 albums on this. One word of warning, it is important that this table be utilized on a 'LEVEL' surface for correct tracking

ü  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit, cleaning inside and out, lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm lead out and testing performance.
 
ü Entire automatic mechanism COMPLETELY disassembled, de-greased, cleaned and re-lubed, (never an easy task on 'auto' turntables) including; the 'Actuating Slide and Pawl', and both plates.

ü 'Speed Change' mechanism disassembled, de-greased, cleaned and re-lubed

ü All internal rubber parts reconditioned including, of course, the idler wheel.

ü Drive motor completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed.

ü Steuerpimpel replaced (this is a 'MUST DO')

ü Steuerpimpel glider pad in fine shape, and fully operational
 
ü Platter bearing disassembled, cleaned of old lube and re-lubed.
 
ü Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy.
 
ü Tone arm Lead-In and Lead-Out.
 
ü Tone arm bearing perfectly smooth in operation.

ü Idler position centered for more positive speed positioning w/ selector.

ü Original Dual Changer / Stacker Spindle inspected, re-lubed with 'dry lube' and EXTENSIVELY tested on multiple tables (see below)

ü Burnished RCA output connectors under chassis

ü He also replaced the anemic, factory RCA cables, with some much higher grade, fully shielded interlink cables, w/ 24kt gold RCA connectors.

ü Table cosmetics detailed.

ü Dust cover 'multi-stage' buffed for improved appearance with no cracks, splits or serious 'battle scars' (actually looks very nice for 45 years old).
 
ü Original platter mat warp & bubble free.

ü Re-glue corner joints in wood base, and Lemon Oil Teak wood veneer

ü Proprietary Dual 'cartridge sled' replaced, and had both mating contact sets burnished  (primarily to address 60Hz hum)

ü New Shure M97-E, Elliptically cut, Diamond Stylus, installed on the Shure 'magnetic' cartridge. Tracking and Bias force also re-set to 2g.


ü Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum (once cartridge 'sled' was replaced and had contacts burnished!).

ü Speed checked and verified for accuracy with technician's factory test strobe disc.

ü He also did an 'orbital buff' to the dustcover and it looks FANTASTIC!!! No cracks, chips or splits to it.

ü Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record

Restoration entailed approx 19+ hrs w/ followed with about MANY hours of testing w/ many albums (mostly because we enjoyed having a 'quality' changer on one of the test stations to listen to).


As this turntable has a 'magnetic cartridge' (unlike most 'stacker / changers' which have 'crystal / ceramic / piezo' pickups) you can readily connect this table to any receiver or Integrated amplifier input. For a basic system, or wanting to get introduced or re-introduced to stacking vinyl records, this is a great table.

You can readily connect this table to any receiver (including 'modern / A/V / Home Theater receivers) or Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or an external Phono Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.


 Plays 16, 33, 45 & 78 RPM records. Selects 7", 10" or 12" record size. As stated above, this table has had EXTENSIVE refurb / restore work. Cosmetically, the table looks great.
 
Again, our turntable tech has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this table (total tech time ~19+ hours).  
Following, and ONLY DUE TO the above restoration / refurbishment, the table starts as it should, and end's as it should with no 'end groove hang up'!
 (While Dual purports stacks of 5 LPs as 'typical', normally you should typically only get about 3-4 on a stack with no issues, and you won't always get '6' to work, but... this table, #5223
was test played thru 25+ cycles and tested thru multiple stacks, with 6X LP's stacked with no issues!!! Occasionally you'll have a record 'hang up' or 'double drop', but that's almost always due to errantly drilled, elliptical or center holes that are 'too tight' in one of the records.
 Overall the table works beautifully and all functions now work GREAT!
We also re-installed a Shure cartridge with a brand new 'M75-E TYPE 2' stylus and optimized the table for it.  (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.) You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits. Again, this table looks near new and works great!!
 

Famous, sought after, and one of their more 'durably designed' DUAL 1219, fully automatic changer phonograph. This is one of only two "Dual 1219s" that we've had in over 20 years that we've restored (due to finally having a technician that's up to the task). Very nice Dual 1219 Stacker / Changer / Single play, Fully-Automatic turntable. One of the most sought after Dual's due to it's 'simple and durable' design. Very difficult to 'break' one of thes.
These are very well built turntables featuring an adjustable speed belt drive platter
, but here's the VERY IMPORTANT POINT about the 1219.  It is one of the few Dual models, offering 'adjustable platter speed' that does NOT utilize a 'toothed belt'. It uses a 'tapered' motor drive pulley. The original 'Toothed' belts, utilized by Dual on MANY of their turntables are now 'UNOBTAINIUM' now, and any of the original / NOS ones still floating around are likely 'dry rotted' and useless. We've tried 'O-rings' (both single and double) with limited success. NOT to worry on this model as it doesn't use that system at all (and that is VERY important).

Dual 1219 Features:
 
- Fully automatic operation
- Single play or Stacker / Changer operation (both 'single and LP 'stacker' spindles included with this one)
- Oil Damped tone arm cueing ('Cueing function defeated when used with 'stacker spindle' for safety)
- Record size selector for 7", 10" or 12" discs to adjust starting position and as a safety to insure that the stylus is not lowered onto the platter with out a record
- Adjustable Platter Speed control (does require 'monitoring' chart)
- 33 1/3, 45 & 78 RPM speeds
- Low mass, straight, metal tube tone arm
- Standard 1/2" mount cartridge head shell
- Tracking force and Anti-Skating adjustable ('course' tracking by 'weight' and 'fine' tracking by 'spring')


Dual 1219 Specifications
:
 
Motor:
Synchronous, continuous-pole Motor, with 'Radial-Elastic' suspension
Drive

Idler Tire / Rim Drive
Platter:  Non-Magnetic, Dynamically Balanced. Weight 3.1Kg / 6.8lbs!, 305mm
Pitch Control:  6% (again DOES NOT utilize a 'toothed belt')
Wow & Flutter:
 +/- 0.06%
Speed Accuracy deviation: <0.06%
Rumble: Un-weighted: -42dB  / Weighted: -60dB
Tonearm: Extra-long, torsionally rigid metal arm, mounted on 4 point Gimbal type bearings. Skeletal head.

Tracking Error: 
<1°, 30'
Cartridge: Accepts all 1/2" mount with a weight of 1-12 grams (incl. mounting)


Again, as previously stated, the table has just been completely gone through by our senior turntable technician and is "Ready to Go"! Following refurbishment / and final inspection / sign off, the table has gone thru a minimum of 25 play cycles, including a minimum of 6 plays of 6x record stacks. You will not be disappointed in this table for all around use. Comes with "Stacker / Changer" tall spindle and 'short / single play' spindle and a pair of 'up-graded' RCA interlinks

Very nice Dual 1219 Stacker / Changer / Single play, Fully-Automatic turntable. One of the most sought after Dual's due to it's 'simple and durable' design. Very difficult to 'break' one of thes.
These are very well built turntables featuring an adjustable speed belt drive platter
, but here's the VERY IMPORTANT POINT about the 1219.  It is one of the few Dual models, offering 'adjustable platter speed' that does NOT utilize a 'toothed belt'. It uses a 'tapered' motor drive pulley. The original 'Toothed' belts, utilized by Dual on MANY of their turntables are now 'UNOBTAINIUM' now, and any of the original / NOS ones still floating around are likely 'dry rotted' and useless. We've tried 'O-rings' (both single and double) with limited success. NOT to worry on this model as it doesn't use that system at all (and that is VERY important).

Dual 1219 Features:
 
- Fully automatic operation
- Single play or Stacker / Changer operation (both 'single and LP 'stacker' spindles included with this one)
- Oil Damped tone arm cueing ('Cueing function defeated when used with 'stacker spindle' for safety)
- Record size selector for 7", 10" or 12" discs to adjust starting position and as a safety to insure that the stylus is not lowered onto the platter with out a record
- Adjustable Platter Speed control (does require 'monitoring' chart)
- 33 1/3, 45 & 78 RPM speeds
- Low mass, straight, metal tube tone arm
- Standard 1/2" mount cartridge head shell
- Tracking force and Anti-Skating adjustable ('course' tracking by 'weight' and 'fine' tracking by 'spring')

ü Original dustcover hinges are 'blown out' (as they're plastic), and while still intact, will not hold the dust cover up.

Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit  cleaning inside and out, lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm and testing performance. Speed checked and verified for accuracy with both internal strobe and the shop calibrated strobe disc. Super quality Gimbal tone-arm bearing. Tracks grooves well. Original dust cover just had fresh buff, and looks decent, with only minor scuffing (see photos above). Original hinges and hinge tabs in fine and functioning condition and holds dust cover in the 'up' position fairly well. No cracks, chips, or hairlines. All four original 'shock absorber' feet intact. Original rubber platter mat, lays perfectly flat with no blistering, bubbles or warps. We also inspected and re-installed existing Pickering DLE, elliptically cut diamond stylus, on the, P-mount head shell.  (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.) You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits. Again, this table looks and works great!!

CHANGER / STACKER TABLES LISTED BELOW. 
Tables with ceramic cartridges can be connected to any AUX, Tape input, CD input, Computer Sound Card input or any input on any receiver / integrated amplifier regardless of whether it has a phono pre-amp or not. 
Tables with ceramic cartridges and non-adjustable tone arms, are generally not recommended for critical listening situations, recordings and / or if your record collection is in above average condition and you want to keep it that way. If any of the previous criteria apply, you should consider one of the higher quality turntables listed above  utilizing magnetic cartridges and fully adjustable, more critically designed tone arms. Please email or phone with any questions.

ü  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit, cleaning inside and out, lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm lead out and testing performance.
 
ü  Entire automatic mechanism COMPLETELY disassembled, de-greased, cleaned and re-lubed, (never an easy task on 'auto' turntables) including; the 'Actuating Slide and Pawl', and both plates.

ü  All internal rubber parts reconditioned including, of course, the 'intermediate' idler wheel.

ü  Drive motor disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed.

ü  'Cushion ring', 'thrust washer / thrust bearing' disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed,

ü  'Trip pawl' cleaned for 'smooth end of album cycle.
 
ü  Platter bearing disassembled, cleaned of old lube and re-lubed.
 
ü  Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy.
 
ü  Tone arm Lead-In and Lead-Out.
 
ü  Tone arm bearing perfectly smooth in operation.

ü Idler position centered for more positive speed positioning w/ selector.

ü He also replaced the anemic, factory RCA cables, with some much higher grade, fully shielded interlink cables, w/ 24kt gold RCA connectors.

ü Table cosmetics detailed.

ü Dust cover 'multi-stage' buffed for improved appearance with no cracks, splits or serious 'battle scars' (actually looks very nice for 45 years old).
 
ü Original Platter bubble / warp free.

ü Due to the head shell 'lift tab' missing previously, we installed an aftermarket 'lift / grove brush' (see photos above)

ü New Audio-Technica, Diamond Stylus, 'magnetic' cartridge installed. Tracking and Bias force also re-set to 2g.

Following, and only due to the above restoration / refurbishment, the table starts as it should, and end's as it should with no 'end groove hang up'!
Unit was test played thru 4 cycles and tested with 6X LP's stacked with no issues!!! (normally you should typically only get about 3 on a stack with no issues, and you won't always get '6' to work, but...)
(also, as you stack on more records, especially once you get to 5 and certainly 6, depending on the overall 'thickness' of the albums in the stack, 'tone arm 'cuing'' will cease to have enough clearance to function correctly on ANY stacker / changer. Just FYI). Overall the table works beautifully and all functions now work GREAT!

ü Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum.

ü  Speed checked and verified for accuracy with technician's factory test strobe disc against built-in strobe.

ü Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record

Restoration entailed approx 7+ hrs w/ followed with about MANY hours of testing w/ many albums (mostly because we enjoyed having a 'quality' changer on one of the test stations to listen to).


As this turntable has a 'magnetic cartridge' (unlike most 'stacker / changers' which have 'crystal / ceramic / piezo' pickups) you can readily connect this table to any receiver or Integrated amplifier input. For a basic system, or wanting to get introduced or re-introduced to stacking vinyl records, this is a great table.

You can readily connect this table to any receiver (including 'modern / A/V / Home Theater receivers) or Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or an external Phono Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.


Great mechanical / electrical
condition BSR  / Realistic 'Professional Series', LAB 24A, fully automatic changer phonograph. Plays 16, 33, 45 & 78 RPM records. Selects 7", 10" or 12" record size. Cosmetically, the table looks great. The dustcover did have a light buff, but to keep the price affordable, we did not spend as much time on it as we might a table that's in the 'grand $' price range. It has numerous scuffs / striations remaining, but overall looks acceptable, and not distracting. We photographed the 'worst' of it (see above). No cracks, chips or splits to it.
 
BSR / Realistic LAB 24A Features include:

   

- 3-Speed Turntable, 16, 33, 45 & 78 RPM
- Magnetic Cartridge equipped
- Stacker / Changer capable on 16, 33's & 78's. Sorry, but we do not have a '45' stacker spindle for this one.
- Fully-Automatic operation
- Record Repeat Function
- Record Size selector- allows 'Auto' or 'Stacking' of any size record at any speed!
- Adjustable Tracking force
- Adjustable Anti-Skating
- Full chassis suspension for damping vibrations
- Heavy version, BSR platter for more stable speed, vibration damping and better 'feel'

    
Again, our turntable tech has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this BSR / Realistic PRO LAB 24A turntable as stated above and 'certified' it's ready to go! Entire table functions beautifully following the above mentioned, complete tear-down and re-build / refurb. ALL functions work great! Comes with a new Audio-Technica 'Yellow', Magnetic cartridge that has been installed and optimized for the tone-arm.
Ready to use! Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty. Measures 17.5" wide x 14.5" deep x 7.75" tall and weighs 13 lbs unpacked.

Most of our turntables are 'component turntables', meaning that you connect them to YOUR EXISTING stereo systems' 'Phono Input' or (another input, utilizing an external 'Phono Pre-Amp').

What...you DON'T have an existing component stereo system? Not to fear. All you need is a pair of powered speakers ('think' the small speakers that came with your computer), and an inexpensive Phono Pre-amp.
You probably already have a pair of 'computer speakers' you can use (or grab a pair on your next trip to a local thrift store), and we have inexpensive phono pre-amps for less than $40, including all the cables you need, that will work.

We've tested this set-up and it works great!  Give us a call for further info, or to order a turntable and the balance of what you would need.


 

 

 


Note: The "Changer / Stacker" functions work best when used with pre 1980's albums due to the 
larger center hole diameter of older records. They also can sometimes work with up to 4 or 5 albums, 
but function best with 3 or less stacked at a time.
Also, for optimum performance, special a special stylus is required for 78 RPM records. While you will get sound from a 33 / 45 RPM stylus, it is best not to use the same stylus for both 78's and then for 33 1/3's / 45's.

Professional DJ / Club table. Quality tool for the 'long haul'! The Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB DJ turntable. Similar in design to some of the vintage turntable models, such as the Kenwood KD-550 'concrete base', the Sony PS-T1, and the Technics SL-1500, SL-1600MK2 or SL-D2 turntable models. This professional stereo turntable features a super high-torque, direct-drive motor for quick start-ups yet is perfectly quiet. Classic 'S' shaped tone arm with 'universal' head-shell that allows mounting of most any 'quality', 1/2' cartridge, either MM (moving magnet) or MC (moving coil). Tone-arm mounted in high quality 4-point, Gimbol bearing.

The AT-LP1240-USB plays back 33-1/3, 45 and 78 RPM records (78 is selected by pressing both 'speed' select buttons simultaneously). Its built-in phono preamp enables the turntable to be connected to a wide variety of music and home entertainment systems, powered speakers, and to A/V receivers that do not include a dedicated phono input (de-featable for 'old schooool' and 'REAL' receivers and integrated amplifiers that 'DO' have a built-in phono pre-amp. The turntable includes PC- and Mac-compatible Audacity® software that converts the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or other format digital audio files.

NEW UPDATE--- We're now including the Audio-Technica AT-95E, MM, Elliptically cut diamond cartridge with tables purchased from us at Oak Tree Vintage.

Table has great mass at almost 30 lbs!

If you have a 'REAL receiver', ie, an old-school, vintage, 2-channel receiver or integrated amp or pre-amp with a phono pre built-in, then you can flip a switch and bypass the 'built-in' phono preamp.
- USB output—connects directly to your computer for plug-&-play use
- Forward or reverse play (this is a DJ feature, and if you value your vinyl or cartridge, DON'T USE 'Reverse'! If you have a crappy cartridge and are playing 'Frisbees', then 'go for it' if you're so inclined!

Concerned about how your turntable will be packed for safe transit.
You should be!!!
The vast majority of turntables shipped from individual sellers, especially the one's from on-line auctions, are damaged in transit due to inadequate / inappropriate packing.
It is VERY difficult to do successfully and most folks do not have the experience or materials to do it anything close to adequately.

SHIPPED TO NEW YORK

 Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit cleaning inside and out. Entire automatic mechanism was disassembled, de-greased, cleaned and re-lubed, including; the 'Actuating Slide and Pawl', and both plates, reconditioned all rubber parts including the 'intermediate' idler wheel, motor disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, 'cushion ring', 'thrust washer / thrust bearing' disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, 'trip pawl' cleaned for 'smooth end of album cycle, then he re-set "lead-in & lead-out" tone arm adjustment and test played. Idler position centered for more positive speed positioning w/ selector. He also replaced the enimic, factory RCA cables, with some much higher grade, fully shielded interlink cables, w/ 24kt gold RCA connectors.
New stylus installed on 'magnetic' cartridge. Dust cover buffed for improved appearance (actually looks very nice for 45 years old). Table cosmetics addressed and repaired as necessary. Tracking and Bias force also re-set to 2g. Restoration entailed approx 8+ hrs w/ followed with about 20+ hours of testing w/ many albums (mostly because we enjoyed having a 'quality' changer on one of the test stations to listen to).

 
Original Platter warp & bubble / warp free. All functions work great! 
As this turntable has a 'magnetic cartridge' (unlike most 'stacker / changers' which have 'crystal / ceramic / piezo' pickups) you can readily connect this table to any receiver or Integrated amplifier input. For a basic system, or wanting to get introduced or re-introduced to stacking vinyl records, this is a great table.
Stylus in fine shape.
Following, and only due to the above restoration / refurbishment, the table starts as it should, and end's as it should with no 'end groove hang up'!
Following always necessary restoration, unit was test played thru 11 cycles and tested with 6X LP's stacked with no issues!!! (normally we can only get about 3 on a stack with no issues, and you won't always get '6' to work, but...). Works beautifully!

The platter and the pick-up arm are mounted on a sub-chassis, which is damped, spring suspended from the rigidly mounted main chassis, absorbing mechanical shocks and external vibrations."
