-> please READ ALL For a sucessful parts inquiry:

The reality about parts for vintage audio equipment that has not been made for decades in more than 95% of cases is:


Thus: For my own repairs I often have to be very creative: experient with subsittutes, pull used parts form similar equipment, custom modify, or even custom fabricate from scratch.

Thus: forget manufacturer replacment part numbers. Foremost I need
ONE (only one please!) detail PHOTO for each part that you need - plus the details form below (1-5)!

The correspondence for finding the right part for you takes a lot of time! To be exact: my work time that I need to bill for at my regular shop rate, as time spent answering parts inquiries is time not spent on my work bench. Thus: $30 minimum for the first part.
So: If you can find the needed part some place elese, please by all means do all you can, to do so! And: BEFORE contacting me!
I offer service for hard to find parts inquiries only, because: I myself know first hand how frustrating it is, not to be able to find them. I am Glad to help, and share form what I have collected over the decades, but need to bill for work my time. Other than that:
Welcome! And: THANK YOU forf your consideratrion!
