    We've had this record player for a really long time and the needle is so dull it won't play a thing, but the turntable works fine, so today I decided I would fix it by all means necessary! [​IMG]
    Well I quickly diagnosed there was no helping the poor needle so I took a sheet of printer paper, rolled it into a cone, wrapped that up in newspaper, and just simply put a needle in the end and bent it a little! [​IMG]

    this is not very good for the record! the song I'm playing is Piano man by Billy Joel, just cause have 2 (out of a set of 300 I got for 20$! [​IMG])

    We have an old Curtis Mathis console that has a transistor radio in it and a record player. Well the needle on the record player was skipping a lot so to fix it, we taped two pennies to the top and now it plays just fine. I love listening to old twangy classic country on it. Nothing like Hank SR blaring through the house on a Saturday morning.
