I recently bought a record player from the mid-sixties on craigslist, but I'm finding that it plays my records a little slow at times. I found a video of the machine here:
I don't know much about record players, but I'm interested in repairing it. To describe the problem-- the records I play sound a little distorted, consistently sounding too slow. I've noticed that the tray on my player doesn't have the felt pad you see in the video, could this simply be that there isn't enough friction between the tray and the record to spin the record completely? Any help would be appreciated.
