This is my son's TD124 sn 32947, purchased new in 1959. Here it is going through its first major restoration, arm adjustment and subsequent AS adjustment:

The Thorens was equipped originally with an ESL arm and B&O SP1 cartridge. Because the arm had a soft mounted tail for the counterweight, which at some point in the 70ies let go, I decided to replace it with components from the "competition" -which I worked for.
The new arm also features a dynamically balanced force tracking system but now addionally included an anti-skate correction for the newer (at that time) Ortofon VMS 20 cart and a 2x antiresonator counterweight, filtering out resonance frequencies for the arm.
Cheers,
Klaus

A quick inventory here...

TD 124 Mk II, Serial no 60256
TD 125 Mk I, Serial no 25215 (label also mentions "V836")
TD 125 Mk II, label lost (I hope it's inside the plinth)
TD 150 Mk II, Serial no 08190
TD 150 Mk II, Serial no 115395
TD 150 Mk II, Serial no 159148 (bought very early 1974 IIRC)
TD 126 Mk II, Serial no 17895 (bought in August 1977 IIRC)
TD 145 Mk I, Serial no 28242
TD 165 Mk I, Serial no 104165 (label also mentions "B 9 861 000")
TD 146 Mk I, Serial no 12328

There's another TD 145 Mk I currently at my daughter's place, I'll have to look.
At this time I'm using only the 124, 125 Mk II and the 126.

Cheers,

Jacques
