- I will not be missed! :p
Truly, I admire the courage and patience the restorer must have. I don't....
actually, when my friend donated me this Telefunken beast in need of full restoration, I was quite scared and also very doubtful I could put my hands into a so complex model.
But my friend was very confident I could succeed, not just because I am THAT expert (because I am not) but mostly because he knows I have a lot of patience and then, when I find a difficult task, before starting working on it with the risk of adding further damage, I take my time to study the situation just carefully... indeed, this was the most difficult deck I've handled so far and, also, very useful to learn some new things.
And, btw, only the first part of the work is complete because I still need to replace all the electrolytic capacitors and a few trimmer pots... but, for sure, dismantling it again will be less painful than the first time described here in this thread.
