This is my first post to this group.
I have acquired an Arvin console which I would like to restore.
It is in working condition but console needs refinished, I have already
ordered replacement styli from Musonic in UK, and vacuum tubes from
The Tube Store.
Other items I will eventually need are replacement BSR *** mat, and
1950s style conical shaped wooden leg replacement with the gold-toned
aluminum tips. If anyone can offer any info, schematics, suggestions,
etc. it would be appreciated.
Also if anyone can tell me what years this model was in production that
might be nice as well.
Here is the info I do have:
Arvin Stereo Mini-Console Record Player Model 75P18

Serial Number 149970
BSR Record Player 4-speed 16, 33, 45, and 78rpm
Ceramic cartridge with dual tip 33/45 and 78 flip-over stylus Ronet
te 208 made in Holland
Uses two General Electric 60FX5 Power Pentode Audio Amplifier tubes
