Cleaning Out

I had recovered some strange things at a shop in Chicago that closed down after 50 years and I have some other stuff that needs to go as well. See items below.

Sales can be Paypal, Credit card, Venmo checks and cash if in person.

Postage for some things will be $8.45 then other larger item can be more.

First Item Akai SB-55 with splicing tabs in the package- there is a plastic splice block with screw holes for mounting on a unit- it says Akai on it. E bay has such a thing for $70. I sell it for $5.00 plus the $8.45 Priority postage- that it.

Tabs are old- they are reversing tabs- might be fine, don’t know.

I have tons of AC adapters- some specialized like for Palm devices other generic. I must have 60 pounds of different ones. Will check voltage out upon sale. $5.00 plus postage. Will try and ship the best economical way.

Don’t Use Refurbished Speed switches on X1000R!

Why would anyone use a 40 year old capacitor in a Sony deck when the one they are replacing failed already? I have seen this done and indicates the person working on the deck does not have experience with these caps.

Put a film cap in that is new. Same goes for the X1000R speed and reel size switches. Don’t put in the same switch some guy pulled out of an old deck to sell you only to have the break like they usually do. These are known weak parts and the latching ramps break off. Put a new switch in that is known to work and is newly made in this year.

I have them for $12 per pair with $8.30 postage in the USA. Higher to other places. If you buy in quantity, I will drop the price further to service people. There is no reason to pay $20 or more per switch from the guy on E bay as he is ripping you off. He pays no where near $20 each probably less than $1.00. I have them ready to ship and I have actually put these switches in a unit and they work fine.
