If you want to contribute, please mail your pdfs to [email protected] Just fixed the cue issue on my 1300 MK II with the Shapeway 3D printed gear. Now fully auto & lift functions. Excellent table now. Like having an SL-1200 with auto feature. Can only give it a 9 because of the lift issue, though. I still have the Technics 1300 I bought in 1975. It works and sounds great.
