Perhaps that's a typo? My SP10 does 78 as well as 33 and 45.

Wow, my typo too. I have a SP10 not an SL10. Its the direct drive monsterous platter studio turntable from the '70s. I have a Grace tonearm and I handbuilt the base and isolation. I got it for $15 without a tonearm back in '83.

That's the one. $15 was a bargain. Mine isn't a runner yet, but it will be mounted on a really heavy plinth when I get around to it (it needs some work on its electronics to un-BBC it).

Lots. They added a variable speed control, fader start, and disabled the local speed controls. All of this plus audio added up to a 2U crate which lived in the huge (oak veneered) cabinet. The SP10 and truly dreadful arm were mounted on a bit of 1" plywood that wobbled on springs. The variable speed was probably fitted primarily for 78s, but I don't know if selecting 78 invoked 78 equalisation.
