I dumped a few of them last year. They didn't look as good as yours though

What about '5$ bargain beauties you restored' ?

Done.

Is yours working now? I remember the Record/Playback switch was mainly the problem with those old decks. And of course the belts and rubber wheels...

My 5 find was a NAD 402 tuner.
A few years old but still working great. Too bad the display is broken (it doesn't display the frequencies no more) and I can't repair it.

It sounds a lot better the analogue Sanyo Tuner I head before. Radio is not my main source, so I'm perfectly happy

This is my $5 amp -- not restored, just totally rebuilt.

Click the image to open in full size.

Being a frugal-phile(tm) i have a pile of stuff that could slot in here, some of it doesn't even need fixing (and some are just given too me).
