Hi Folks,

I'm in the process of restoring a couple of old radiograms. One 1948 Philips and the other a 1937 Philco.

Both are using Garrard turntables, both are 78 RPM only

One of them needs the cartridge rebuilt. I'm told its possible to do but fiddly which is fine. The turntable is a Garrard RC70B 78RPM. Output from the cartridge is very low.

Any advice on restoring appreciated.

Cheers

If you can post a photo of the cartridge it would help.

Hi Sue, I will do.
I think I have to email the pic to the admin and they post them.
Cheers
Scott
