"but can't stop buying stuff"  I think all of us suffer from this dreaded disease...  It will eventually stop...  Either you will run out of money OR run out of space!!!   >:D

If you can make arrangements to purchase that remote, and seller is available Sunday, I can pick it up for you while I am in transit from my mom's house in Aliquippa...

I'm guessing you mean dust cover, not headshell?

Do you have any measurements of what would fit?  Sometimes other brands might fit...  Or other yamaha turntables...

I "think" I have a set of spare tt hinges, might even be from a yamaha...  I'll check & let you know...

Someone posted this a while back...  Most of us have concern about the "lack of tension" on the takeup reel so the tape makes good/accurate contact over the tape head...

Agree, that it looks pretty neat!!!  :)

thanks for the reply...

Guess I should have stated more info...  My mom's condition is poor, BUT based on her diagnosis, she does NOT qualify for an electric hospital bed!!!  Medicare will provide a "crank" bed...  She can qualify for a "crank" hospital bed, but that is basically useless, unless I pay some monkeys to live in her room do the "crankin" when needed!   ;)

I will check into the renting, but feel I will need to buy her one...

Sorry for off topic, but need some help here...

Unfortunately, my mom has taken a turn for the not so good...  She is ok, but needs lots of assistance now...  :(

Anyway, I am getting her moved into an assisted living location in Plum (I live in Penn Hills & work in Monroeville)

Do any of you have leads/info on electric hospital beds?  What should I look for, brands, features, new vs. used, etc.

I see prices from $50 to $1000 for used on craigslist...


Sorry, a little "nosy" here...

What move in May???

Basically, need 5 low wattage 150 ohm resistors...  I usually get at parts express or former mcm...  Looking to pickup today locally...

My odometer went out in my 2002 regal & search shows I need min of (4) resistors to fix instrument panel...

Since Rat Shack no longer around, what economical sources are in the Penn Hills / Monroeville area?
