Thank you! That must be it. The switches looks identical. Seems not to be a common player. But emaybe easier know to find the missing switch on mine when I know what to search for.

Maybe the Lenco L73 was more common. It looks also identical.

Maybe a helpful thread that I've had found in a German forum, with a few pictures of the internal parts: Lenco L73

By the way, on your second picture it looks that there are some essential parts under the platter missing - the motor and the speed change lever for the drive belt... . :-k

Thanks, maybe that are more common. On the second picture I have removed the motor. On mine the motor is in the corner where the switch for changing speed is. So have to remove the motor to replace the switch, so I have no arm, its som short clip instead, I can post a picture when I'm home.
I have no drive belt either, so must find the correct model to order one.

Here is a picture from the underside with motor mounted:

Picture under the plattern:

Cant figure out where to mount the spring though...

But i need a switch from the other side before I can put it right.

So, is this a Lenco? :) it sure does look like it but the motor is not placed on the same place. Need to buy a drive belt. If I dont find a switch I will do a homemade thing or mod another switch and fit it there until I found the right one :)
If anyone has any spare parts please tell me :)

I am going to guess Rek-O-Kut Rondine 2.

I'm cheating a bit as I have one. Mine did not come with the OEM arm so that makes it more difficult for me, but the arm in the picture looks R-O-K to me.

I believe the Rondine 2 was their first belt drive.

My guess would be Rek-O-Kut N-34H with a Rek-O-Kut Micropoise S220 tonearm.

Hi themisto462,

You may be correct. That cover over the belt capstan looks larger than mine. That is likely to accommodate the belt shifting mechanism. The N-34H is 33 1/3 / 45 RPM as opposed to the Rondine 2 which is 33 1/3 only.

I believe the arm which you mentioned is what came with mine OEM. As I understand it would lift automatically at the end of the record. I get the idea it was problematic, but I would love to get one anyway to make my machine original. It was going to get my Grace 940 but a second Kenwood KD 500 came into my life and I think it will win out for the arm.

Hi themisto462,

Did you just edit and add the picture?

Now I'm closer to the Rondine 2 which has a painted steel motor board. Your picture shows wood on top and straight sides on the plinth. The Rondine 2 has a wooden plinth which is wider at the top and the OP's picture looks to me like that.

PS: I just went to the library and the N34-H there seems to have a painted metal motor board so I don't know.

He has the close attention of two lovely ladies, so I'd say he is doing something right.

OK this guy is a few decades before the "Me To" movement, but that means he is ahead of many of us. Women are to be respected and loved for more than being sex objects.
