Paint brush. Almost all the parts were washed with liquid soap. All electronics, PCBs and motor spindles are sprayed with deoxit and brushed them carefully.

Resurrected 1200 MK2 (labelled)

Here's the 4th pair we finished for Frankie Cortez.

One unit was a 1200 MK2 while the other was a 1210 MK2. Restored back to original silver MK2 with original Technics logo and labels. Main diecast frames and tonearm sections are repainted to original MK2 silver. Rubber base to flat black. Platters scraped, ref-faced and repainted. All used with automotive polyurethane paints. Strobes are fitted with Super bright red LEDs. 33/45 fitted with 5mm red LEDs for better illumination (stock was 3mm). Pop-up lamps converted to super bright white LEDs. Pitch indicator fitted with super bright green LEDs and defused. High grade RCA cables and connectors installed with internal ground. Tonearms calibrated to factory setting. Pitch controls calibrated and applied with Deoxit (Fader). One deck was missing some parts such were: pitch control assembly (pitch control, pitch PCB and pitch knob), tonearm clip, and tonearm counter weight. So all these parts were provided to complete the deck. New silver aluminum pitch decals applied.

See before and after pics below.

Great job inside and out, and happy birthday angelo, and just to pose a question, what's the use or purpose of the sub auxilliary weight that is located at the back of the counter weight in the tonearm, my headshell is also original technics and m447 cartridge, I have one and thinking of using the sub weight as well, but is their any good purpose to use it? I use my turntable for listening only and not for Djing, Hope you can share your knowledge, thanks

Is your headshell the one with a counterweight on top? The additional sub auxilliary weight is designed to be used with the newer Technics headshell with counterweight on top. Especially when using the extra 4 grams.

You can use the counterweight plate that comes with the shure cartridge that you place between the headshell & cartridge. Then use the auxiliary weight.

Gary's M5G

These decks have gone through a full maintenance service and some modification work.
Everything cleaned thoroughly. Main frame, internals, PCBs, switches, tonearm assembly, platters, rubber base, legs, etc. Pitch controls cleaned and lubricated with Deoxit. Tonearms calibrated and lubricated pivot bearings. Ground wire eliminated and internally grounded. Retained original RCA cables since they are still in excellent condition. Motor spindle cleaned and lubricated. Stock strobe LEDS are replaced with bright red. 33 LED to super bright blue and 45 to super bright red. Stock pop-up lamp replaced to super bright blue with front firing position and pitch indicator replaced to super bright white. All buttons (start/stop, 33/45, reset, pitch range) and pitch knobs coats have started to peel. So everything mentioned were repainted to original M5G stock color. Hand paint traced the markings to black and top coated the buttons and knobs to clear flat paint. Under platter halo installed with power supply. Pitch plate polished as well as the dust covers.
