Gotta love that old Dual

Gotta love that old Dual 1019, its the most balanced, most durable, best built Dual ever made, and I'm a Dual enthusiast.

Some people prefer the 1229, but deep down they know the most accurate, finest, most accurate, and simply best turntable by Dual.

Turntables: Dual CS 1268 W/O Elevator Spindle Or Working Start/Stop Feature.

Printing 1019 Template

Hi All,
Finally got around to printing the 1019 Template today - but found that PDF page size was about 2x too big to reflect the actual measurements on the page. Got around it by manually setting the page size on my plotter to 22.61 inches wide by 17.77 inches tall, printing in landscape mode with NO scaling of any sort. At these dimensions, the printed copy was "reasonably" close (+/- 1 or 2 mm) to the actual measurements on the template.

Just a heads up in case you try to print or before you send it to a printing bureau who will, by default, do it wrong the first time due to page size of original PDF file and probably charge you for the privilege.

Too many projects, too little time ....

Thanls for the manual.
Bought my Dual-1019 in 1966 in Baden Baden germany, and still works great. Amazing isn't it!
I bought 3 belts and a few spare parts for a few dollars then .... and thought it might be a good time to put new ones now.

Thanks again for the manuals.

Thank you for helping me tune up!

Appreciate the time it took to archive all your info.
