Hi folks,

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:
