These all came from the VOA and have seen a lot of service. I plan to use it for PB only. The heads are worn and will need some polishing but they look serviceable. The cost of this machine, according the paperwork that came with it, was about $6800.00 back in the 70's. I was able to find all the servicing information on this deck as well as the schematics so it will be an interesting "after work" project. Thanks in advance for any and all info.
