nick, don't you think you should hold off, and offer this w/the turntable when you decide to let it go?

Iíve thought of that, Doug. So far, no interest. Getting ready to put the arm and table for sale. I also have a specially made pulley for 78s that AJ Conti made for me. Another one of a kind.
Hope youíre on the mend and feeling better each day

well, you could sell the cover as an option w/the deck.  i just think it would make the deck that much more attractive to a prospective buyer, and therefore easier to sell that.  and, i think you really need to figure out a way to ship the turntable - only way you're really going to have any luck selling it, imo.  you might even want to consider contacting these folks - yes, i know they will take a commission, but 90% of a sale price is better than 100% of nothing!  😁  and they can help you figure out how to pack/ship.

re: what ails me; i'm definitely much better; getting up and around fine; thanks for the thoughts.  still a couple of aches and pains that will likely take quite a while to completely diminish.

Thanks for that link, Doug. Will check them out. Yes, I expect it will be a difficult sale. I guess thatís why I left it for last....

yes, and that's why i urge you not to sell the dustcover separately; it will only make the main sale easier if you have a complete package.

the arm might be an easy sale separately, but i'd only offer the turntable w/o the arm as an option, if a buyer wanted; not the other way around.  if someone offers to buy the arm, tell them only if you sell the turntable and the buyer wants it w/o arm.  (and same, if someone offers to buy the dustcover only.)
