Grabbed it in a heartbeat, have a very vague question for anyone who's knows about reel to reel. The power button is extremely quirky, does not always stay in the on position. Everything seems to work but the tape will tighten up after a bit and stop spinning. A very slight crackling from the back can be heard after it 'seizes' up. No I have not really played around with it (I'd hate to damage it, honestly ran it less than 5 mins) My question is very vague and I understand that, but what price range am I looking at for a once over, new belt oiled power button at a minimum rough ballpark, and any guess to the cost of a full restoration? I understand there are multiple variables at play. I ask because I plan on having it looked at, but dont want to be 'taken' for more than it's worth. Meters light up and appear to work and the unit has no scratches or Knicks what so ever.
