Neat Shield MO-19 table - help, anyone?
I literally rescued this Neat Shield MO-19 from being tossed into a dumpster. Itís in surprisingly great condition for itís age! This table was in the process of being refurbished. Apart from a little dust on it when found, this clone of an idler drive table appears to only need a bit of loveÖ and a tonearm!
From what I've been able to uncover from various forums, this model was made for the American market. I'm guessing it's 1966-1970 vintage. The platter spins easily by hand but the motor*does not engage when plugged in - several wires are left to connect and I imagine some of the assembly has yet to be tightened down.
The mechanics look very similar if not identical to the Neat P-58H. I found several pics of the P-58H wiring on the internet. There is at least one capacitor that might be missing and need to be identified.
The wood base is massive and the metal work - what looks like powder coat - seems near pristine. The motor beneath looks good with no rust and has a handful of wires unconnected. I've uploaded some pics of the Neat Shield plus one of the Neat P-58h.
I hope someone will contact me regarding it's refurbishing... I'm a monkey with a most things electrical. I live in Jersey City, NJ.
