Default Drive cords

While looking at a PW I posted about in another thread I came across this article about drive cords. Page 181 gives some diagrams and hints for tackling undocumented set ups.
May help those who have to change one for the first time.

What a coincidence Frank, I read that article in the magazine you posted, and was considering posting it! However I did post in the vintage audio section a picture of a Garrard Battery Operated Turntable instead.

I hated drive cords, always fixed them but never liked them. My electronic expertise for what little that’s worth was always better than my mechanical.

I was never great at re-stringing drive cords, either. Some on manually tuned car radios (remember them!) were quite easy, but others could be a right PITA to get right! It was a blessing when digital frequency displays came along, IMHO!
