Military Lenco model PLS-66
quote/ In all the years I collect and restore Lencos, never anything like this crossed my way and obviously I wanted to share this with you....a NOS military Lenco model PLS-66 from 1968 made for the Swiss Army. /unquote
1 week later.....
yes yes yes it does work !!! and I have the explanation why this thing has not been used / remained NOS somewhere in a military warehouse.
One cable was loose and the motor, unlike the normal lenco motor is a 12V and it was blocked, most probably since the start.
We had to loosen the 2 screws that held the motor together , put some washers to allow the motor to rotate freely and tighten up the screws again. That was it . Like Snowwhite waking up .....
You can see a video on youtube and attached 3 pictures with the original Headshell .....and a few original vintage glenn miller records
i did not have any elvis presley and the rolling stones would not have been fit for purpose.
Anyway very best rgds from Switzerland
