    Sold as fully functional…….however I think a bit of cleaning (quite a bit actually) and replacing of dried out capacitors will be required before power is connected, some replacement veneer too I’m thinking

    Making a start on “the low hanging fruit”,IMG_2079 to quote a project manager I once worked with. A friend of mine spent some time cleaning up the curser.  Interestingly this piece isn’t anodised like the face plate, which is probably why it oxidised so badly, I’m told that one can determine if something has been anodised by the use of a multimeter set to ohms……if something is anodised it wont conduct?….I will test this. New felt pads will be included too.

    I’ve decided on this african iroko veneer…..will need to stain it in order to darken it down to match the Beogram 5000 it will be paired with P1016768

    This is a slow and painstaking exercise requiring a lot of sanding and swearing…….cant hurry the glue drying process either….P1016771

    Cabinet top veneer finished, shame to stain it actually….I quite like the iroko wood grain, but will have to match the Beolab or it will look odd.P1016777

    This was interesting….on removing the front panel for shipping to Frede I discovered a wad of folded paper wedged between the panel and the chassis……..cant imagine what it was doing there?

    disconnected and removed the tuning meter, front lens is a little cloudy from too much UV and some debris has got between the two halfs of the assembly….making it look unkept. Cant do a lot about the cloudy lens…I have tried in the past to no avail….but I can clean away the debris……..

    Finished with the replacement of trimmers and capacitors, all except the channel seperation trimmer…thought I would wait until the unit is up and running before playing around with a replacement for that one.
