Default Beogram!

Found this in attic of the old house, has been up there for at least 30 years.

It is a B&O Beogram 1000 made around 1970. It was a gift from friend in back in the 80's, the arm had no counterweight, so I machined a new one. It was used for a short time, then put into storage after being replaced by a modern Japanese turntable.

When I found it again it was in a bad condition, filthy, dirty and rusty, but the motor was still running ok. It was taken apart, cleaned and the steel parts painted. Then reassembled, lubricated and adjusted, broken parts replaced. The hardest part was repairing and polishing the acrylic dust cover. It seems like the pickup is ok, but probably not as good as new. It plays ok for now anyway.

Here are som pictures of the restored Beogram, please enjoy.
