This is a J.A. Michell Hydraulic Reference Turntable I bought new in the '70's. Its the same model as used in "A Clockwork Orange". Yep, saw the movie and had to have one. It got ruined when I stored it in the cellar of a rental house and the cellar flooded during hurricane Isabel. I didn't have the heart to toss it so I've been keeping it all this time and finally decided it needs to be restored. I just got done taking it mostly apart. The plinth is 3/4" plywood with 1/8" black plexi glued to it so I am testing ways of getting its shine back. Will do the same with all the metal parts. Surprisingly the motor survived being submerged and just needed to be taken apart and cleaned and lubed. I sold the original arm off it years ago and will try and get one off ebay most likely or maybe set it up for another arm. The dusty cover is made of clear 1/4" plexi flat pieces glued together and its all fogged so unless it buffs out I will have to have a new one made up.Should be a fun project.

Here is what they are supposed to look like (Someone else's unit):

I recently finished the latest turntable project, a 1966 Thorens TD124 MKII. I'll spare you the pictures of the process and show the results. 

 The custom plinth is cherry. The arm board is Jatoba, reclaimed from a floor we removed on a remodel we did a few years ago.

What a masterpiece! I like the two different kinds of wood.
That turntable is as old as ME.

Doesn't take much of a wobble to mess up the tracking. And its just asking to be bumped into and possibly knocked over. Not to mention drinks getting set on it and spilled.

Yep, got an SL 1700 from 1978 or so.  The only remaining piece from my original rig as a 20 something yo.

Give it a shot in the pots now and then with contact cleaner and lube the bearing with auto tranny fluid.

Solid as a rock.  Using it now.  Tubular Bells.

The speed pots going flakey and needing cleaning is a common problem on Technics tables.
