Disassembly of the Thorens Reference mk1.

Rolfs notes:

Today Reference I - number 22 was disassembled . It was very exciting work.

I have much new information. It is something like discovering a new,

strange and unknown continent. Most knowledge about this table was lost over the

past 20 years.

So I took measurements, made drawings and shot very many photos.

As well, I disassembled the SME 3012RG. The arm is in good condition, so I

cleaned every single part and put them together this evening.

See the pics of the day attached.
