Professional Restoration

Artisan Fidelity restoration services involve individual factory model disassembly, frame-off rebuilding, refinishing and comprehensive refurbishing by hand. Each model treated with the same close attention to detail including deep ultra sonic cleaning, original equipment manufacturer specified lubricant, degausing and hand polishing.  Intricate parts disassembly, primary bushing inspection, replacement, bearing housing flush, spindle micro polishing, heat removal and fresh vacuum oiling of main sintered bronze bushings.  Manufacturer viscosity specific bearing oil is used to maintain the highest standard of operation and lowest friction, however, in certain cases modern synthetic spindle oil may be substituted.  Certain proprietary designed upgraded precision machined parts possessing ultra high tolerances which meet or in many cases, exceed original equipment manufacturer standards available for all makes and model turntables serviced.  Electronics and motors, including power supplies and control, logic and drive boards bench tested then painstakingly rebuilt by renowned electronics engineer and open reel tape machine expert Soren Wittrup / CS Electronics, a lifelong professional proudly endorsed by recording industry legend John Klett.  Hand selected, audio grade capacitors and premium Silver based Cardas solder routinely employed.  Preliminary and post service oscilloscope bench inspection of internals comprehensively carried out to ensure proper electrical and mechanical functioning.  Controller, contacts and power switches are striped and cleaned using electrical specific lubricants.
