Sony TC-651 Rebuild
I picked up this 1970's vintage reel-to-reel tape deck from my friend who trades in antique radios. It was very dirty and in real need of restoration. I hesitated at first to take on another project, but since it wasn't missing any parts I decided to see what could be done with it.
Front and rear views of the tape deck. Although it's a bit of a beast, it wasn't too difficult to work on since most of the PC boards plug in.
All the PCBs after be recapped and cleaned up.
