Re: arsclist turntable advise
What is the channel looking device at extreme left, next to the Doctor's
Are microscopes like that still made?
Whta is the silver colored device between the microscope and the left cover
The plastic items to the right of the table that look like coins?
Small plastic pipe tube?
The device to the left of the top head shell?
Inquiring minds want to know, and me too.
Video Works! Is it working for you?
