I just purchased a cool old Seeburg Jukebox that was made in 1950. It is the Model 100B, and it plays the records sideways (vertically). This thing is very cool, and needs some work, but I think I can get it working. The amplifier is a tube type and it is only Mono (stereo hadn't even been invented yet). The mechanism for playing the 45 RPM records is a marvel of Mechanical Engineering. I've been able to disassemble it so far, and I've gotten the main clutch off the Select-O-Matic mechanism to find it was so gummed up with old oil that the gears wouldn't even move. I cleaned it all up and I'll be taking the entire Select-o-matic mechanism down to nuts and bolts or nearly so.
Anyone have any experience with one of these? I have to relaminate the entire cabinet case, so I'll be most likely using a plastic laminate rather than wood veneer, just because it will last so much longer with the plastic laminate.
Should be a really fun electro-mechanical project, so any advice would be welcome or anyone who has experience with this will be appreciated.
I'll post some photos of it shortly.
