Here's my Miracord 50H daily user turntable, rescued from Goodwill. All it took to get it working was a good dirt scrubbing and a bit of oil.

That's a fine piece of cabinetry!

watch out for those 1960's bsr decks. they are very hard on records. the 70's bsrs are somewhat gentler.

i can always appretiate some vintage turntables, consoles tabletops, im more a component hi-fi kinda guy but i always pick one up when i see it. or when i buy a big lot of stereo gear sometimes i get one thrown in with the pile. i have 20+ consoles in storage up north including a maggie concert grande and some other uber cool stuff. i do have a few down here with me though, here are a few, (very few) of my treasures..







really early solid state maggie

indeed nice micromatic, ive always loved them. with the big black tonearm clunky controls, built to last forever.

but my alltime favorite console stereo style turntable is the 2 headed zenith cobra-matic, with two seprate tone arms, one for 78 one for lp, usually green and red. i have one in storage. the other cobra-matic that i have and love is in a old stereo theater console with a stereo and 27" back and white tv. it has a white arm and the snake eyes light up on it!! never seen another one like it. when i dig it out of storage ill take some pics, i promise!

They usually go for free. Not many people are willing to haul a 100+ lb. monster like this.

My "new" Vctrola

Hi folks, finally have another addition for the collection. I picked it up off of CL, and got very lucky. I just had a feeling

Anyway, I couldn't believe the condition of this machine when we went to look at it, I didn't even hesitate to give the asking price of $250 for it. It came with a whole shelf of 78's.

Since I bought it, I've replaced the rubber mount for the exhibition reproducer and bought needles, too. It plays really quite nice! I ordered a rebuild diaphragm rebuild kit for the reproducer, so she'll be like new again.

The only thing missing is the original crank, which, I've learned, is prone to breakage in these early Victrola's.

I'm sure I can come up with one sooner or later, for now, the crank that was with it is adequate.

Did it again...

...couldn't pass this up!

I replaced the rubber backer on it, the gaskets on the reproducer look recently replaced and are pliable and seal the mica well, I just had to re-apply wax to the screw attached to the foot. The motor runs smooth and strong.

A nice companion for the collection!
