Good day!
Well,
I started on this several years ago, but no time to finish. With the Stay-At-Home-Orders, I had all the time in the world. Please check pages 11 and 12 of this section to see what I started with. Please disregard the poor quality of the video, I will post a much better one in the next few days.
Here is the video link:

Spent a lot time refinishing this cabinet which had seen better days! 3 coats of poly, hand sanded between each coat.

I finally finished up the RCA 45-EY-3. Man once you polish it up it becomes almost impossible to get a good photo with all the flash reflection and there isn't enough ambient light to get a good one that'll show the turntable without the flash. She plays like a champ, although a bit more treble than I would like. This one has the 3 tube chassis.

Beautiful! What did you use for the polish?

Hello everybody . Very interesting topic ... Here is my favorite Farnsworth GK-669 radio turntable. The sound is just fantastic. Unfortunately, the later Webster Chicago 355 turntable is already installed here. I would definitely buy the original Farnsworth turntable, but unfortunately I don't even know which model should have been installed here. Can anyone provide information?

I believe it should have a Farnsworth P56 record changer.

It's not a very common record changer. I've never seen one in person. You could try placing an ad in the classified section.

Here's a video of a Farnsworth record changer:

It is hard to say, among all our jukeboxes, radios and phonographs, which is our favorite. Yet this one is probably up in the top ten. It is an early Victor VI motor, horn and arm, the notorious spur gear version, housed in an aftermarket case by Douglas. Made probably around 1906. Enjoy, Russie

Motorola project is finished and planning a new project with a Packard Bell console cabinet, circa 1948.
Here's a few more pictures of that Motorola project. 6 tube amplifier and true 3 channel stereo sound. Just like a mini-stereo console!

One more pic showing the beautiful mahogany finish.
I've been playing this for almost 4 months straight on the bench, it sounds awesome, and the stereo separation is something that has to be heard!
