thanks bruce.  much appreciated.

saved this one from a dumpster.  has the dust cover with the logo still on
it too although it has a very minor split in one side.  barely noticible.
seems to work fine but hey, its got all those adjustments, and i love to
adjust stuff...

Sorry, no luck so far.......have a couple more places to look though.
If I don't find it by tomorrow this time...afraid it's gone. I did find the
feet that go on the base or at least I think that's what they are from.
(If you need them)

np.  i see em on ebay and through websites so i know they're out there.  i
just thought i'd give the group a crack at it first.

mine has no feet, but i cant see why i cant just scavange some *** feet
from somethin else.  unless they are magical feet <g>  seems odd though that
the feet are missing since without them the base sits on the cords.
searching ebay shows all the feet are gone on those too.  someone stole all
the feet!!

seriously though, ive never seen the stock feet.  is there anything special
about them?  the turntable floats so i cant see needing any special
'leveling' feet...

thx for looking.  much appreciated.

The feet are heavy for their size...some kind of lead alloy maybe. I posted
a pic
on the binaries.....sorry, I called you "Dave" over there. I must have glued
that felt on the
bottom of the one as it's a balance rail felt made for a piano. I bought
that Lab 80
for use with a Scott LK-72 I built from a kit in the late 60's. The amp was
149.95 and the
case was another 35.00 I think. Can't remember what I paid for the TT.
You could fry an egg on top of the amp and blow out the
walls all at the same time. :-) I had a Zero 100 when they came out
too....don't remember
what happened to either one of them anymore....hey it was the 70's....
I never did stack records on either one of them. The 80 was very easy to set
up IIRC.
I did some poking around to refresh my memory....it's still a pretty
thing....wish I still
had it. Have fun.

very dumb question here, which is the binary group for this group?  i should
know by now...  i just cant find it.  ill have a look if someone tells me
what group and get back to ya.

yeah, i cleaned it with murphys oil soap, then put a coat of lemon oil on
it.  it looks gorgeous.  fooled around with it this weekend, got it all
adjusted althought the anti-skate may be off a bit as i have no test or
blank record handy.  should be close.  very easy to set up.  i never stack
records either.

sounds like you had a fun system.

there is one problem i would like to fix though.  the arm return seems to
miss often though, it clicks anywhere from 1-20 times before it returns the
arm at the end of the record (or if you flip the auto switch) something isnt
catching and i just cant figure out whats going on.  if you turn it on its
side and watch it, gravity takes over and things dont 'work'  properly.
guess i need to put it on a glass table and watch it from under it <g>  not
the end of the world if i cant fix it.

any ideas?

thx
randy

Georg,
I tried to email you with no success. I was wondering if you ever
got that Capehart changer that was in the wooden box. (from a model
100)

sorry georg.  i'm sure the translator had no idea what to do with my last
message.  let me rephrase it more correctly.  see if this makes it through
the translator.

thank you very much for trying to send it to my email, but as you had
guessed, it is a fake one.  the real one is at yahoo, username  xrongor.

however, you dont need to send it to that address.  i found another way to
access the picture.  I just had to wait a few hours for it to get to the
other location.

thank you for thinking of me.
