Philco Reel to Reel Tape Recorder
Philco reel to reel from around 1969. This worked but needed several problems sorting; first was a general lubrication of the mechanism, switch cleaning of the many switches, one of the volume pots was also broken. These have a change over switch on the back, I had to use a standard 10k pot without the switch as unable to find a replacement. Dismantled the reel clutches as the torque was too low to drive the tape reels and replaced a few capacitors in strategic positions. This one uses germanium transistors but worked and sounded ok after repair.
