It certainly is an interesting piece to have pop up at a flea market.
The flea markets where I am are all held in fields, not the best place for buying electronics.
One has a flag pole in the center with a power outlet. I've carried units across the field and plugged them in to see if they light up.
I've made some good buys, but its certainly a risk without testing.
Biggest surprise was a Thorens TD-125 that was being sold as "dead" for very cheap money. I brought it home, put a belt on it and it was fine.
I wonder if the seller knew it needed a belt ?
reelsmith's axiom: Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
