My collection, such that it is, all working  perfectly.

Apart from the jukeboxes and wall boxes I've had all this stuff from new. Except for the Leak 2000, which I bought cheaply on eBay about ten years ago (when they were unfashionable) to replace a 1972 Philips 709 tuner/amp that died.


2015 : Panasonic Viera TV TV is with memory stick with 3000 plus mp3s on it.
2015 : Panasonic SU-HT B18 Soundbar.
2015 : Humax HDR 2000T 2010 : Panasonic S75 DVD/CD player
2004 : Sony SLV-SE740 VHS recorder/player
1980 : Leak 2000 tuner/amp
1972 : Philips 308 turntable
1972 : Sharp RT442H cassette player
1972 : Goodmans Havant speakers
2010 : Yamaha YTS 62 tenor saxophone
2000 : Yamaha PSR 1000 electric piano. This is now so old, it records to floppy discs! It was my fifth electric piano
2010 : Datasync adapter for jukebox wall boxes

1969 : Rock-Ola 443



1976 : Rock-Ola 468



1968 Rock-Ola Phonette Wall Box



1976 : Rock-Ola 507 Wall Boxes

Love the jukeboxes, especially the wallboxes! Do you maintain or work on them yourself? I've got a '71 Wurlitzer Zodiac that I brought back from the dead and a '63 Wurlitzer 2700 that needs restored. The 2700 has to go, just don't have the time to work on it.

Thanks for the kind words.
Both boxes I bought on eBay several years ago.
Both were in reasonable working order and had been in separate  private hands for over 20 years, just needed a good clean and a lube job. I replaced all the fluorescents and obtained a "new old stock" graphic for the 468 and a "new old stock" record card insert for the 443. "Because everything goes blue after a time."
I remade the graphic for the 443 out of overlaid coloured and opaque A4 acetate.

Super job!  I never would have picked up on that if you hadn't pointed it out.

Thanks again.

This was the original eBay photo

 

The graphic was in a sorry state and I had to repair a crack in the grill.





Fortunately, there was a retaining strip top and bottom  which holds all the separate pieces of acetate firmly.

The record card insert came from "Victory Glass" At first they said they hadn't any, but I found the part number in the service manual, so they came back to me and  then said they'd found seven.
I bought two as they had a minimum charge and put they other on e-Bay, it was bought by an enthusiast in Malta. Victoria glass I doubt will have any left now as they bought all the original spares when Rock-Ola folded.

My camera doesn't pick up the purple very well it looks too white.
