TD150 again
« on: June 08, 2017, 09:29:40 am »
I couldn't resist and picked up a another beat up Thorens TD150 to give a makeover. It had been stored in a loft for 30 years and was filthy all covered in a dark yellow film which I am guessing was a build-up of what looked like tar from a leaky chimney.
