This unit has been restored, is complete and comes with extras. The Presto K6 Amp was restored with new capacitors, internal wiring, new fuse holder and fuses (many extra fuse holders included), all new tubes, and a grounded three prong power cable. The motor was also cleaned and rebuilt and clocks at 78rpms as designed. All of the original parts are included and the unit is complete.
The adapters are included so you can cut to the K6 from an XLR cable (instead of 1930's screw in cable) or use the microphone to record from. I have also included a few different types of new cutting needles so you can start your record cutting adventure (both Sapphire and Steel). It seems to get in the way so I took it off. Since there was no schematic originally made for this unit (schematics started with K8) I had an engineer create a schematic by modifying the K8 schematic.
This could possibly be the only schematic for the K6 in existence and was created with the intention of keeping this unit alive for future generation. There are not many left that are in working I'll send you a PDF also. The speaker works perfectly and sounds great. Its very loud and warm. I detached the speaker from the cutter but the hinges and all the screws are in the tool box if you wanted to put it back on.The speaker box is separating in one spot as shown in the picture and will eventually need to be reglued and nailed. The speaker cable is starting to fray and will eventually need to be replaced. The cutter head is in great condition for its age original and not modified. The Presto cutter head sounds good and and puts out a strong signal. I suggest at some point it be serviced by a professional in the years to come. Until will be packaged in large box with lots of bubble wrap to protect the contents. I will remove the tubes and put them in the tool box wrapped in bubble wrap to protect them since they are NOS tubes and in great working condition.
