Record Player Phillips Disc Jockey Auto (Glapwell)

A recent house clearance uncovered the above mentioned record player.

It looks very old and I could not get it to successfully play a pleasing sound. I assume this to be mechanical failure rather than one of the selected 1970's records I put on the turn table (check me out with the terminology...I was around as a child when they were hip and trendy daddyo!)

I have checked with a couple of record player repair companies and they suggest the abhorrent noises were not a result of the vinyl disc contents from some obscure wailing tribe but an internal piece that would cost from £30 to repair.

Should you want some sort of revenge on your teenage children, the noise emitted over several days will probably cause them to pack a bag and not return until said player is burned, dissolved in acid or fired into space.

Also useful as a cake decorating tool as it still spins ok but I would suggest piping the icing fast; akin to needing the loo before the taxi arrives.

I wanted to say first come first served but the demand is likely to be low so I will change it to please come and get it as I am loathe to throw away a key marker in the evolution of our music consumption aka piece of tat.

Many thanks for reading this far.....

and this far.....

and now this far....
