Following a protracted delivery process Justin was finally able to get this to me, seems it had fallen off DHL's radar a week or so ago and we feared the worst........

A very clean looking unit....comes with a set of capacitors and laser printed mounting brackets from Rudi, along with some LED's for the control panel.

The unit is described as working with the following issues:

Neon lamp for speed indication not working

Tone arm refuses to move up or down

Some time on the work bench will confirm that no other problems exist.

The solenoid and assembly look gummed up, they don't move freely which will be contributing, if not the cause, to the tone arm woes.....I've also noted that the bottom leaf spring on the middle switch is not straight, I suspect its not breaking when the solenoid operates....

Indeed Sonavor......almost bullet proof!

The lift arm was very very difficult to move back and forth....almost immovable with  my finger.

Bit of persuasion and some light oil helped to free the assembly up.....

I noticed at this point that the nylon roller which supports the carriage on the steel rail upon which it runs was skewed off to one side, on investigation i found the screw was tightly screwed in but looked cross threaded......
