Just want to share pics of my newly-dressed Thorens 166 MKII ... had the plinth made on one of the shops going to Tagaytay.
I did all the transferring of the table itself, the drillings, the installation of the detachable power cord and the IC connections
on the rear panel. It's been a while since the last time I had done this ..... a great pleasure felt upon completion :)
