PE 3060 idler wheel (1973)



PE 3060 idler wheel (1973)

I’ve been restoring one of these turntables since last October. I’ve had the idler wheel reconditioned twice and it’s still not able to make pure, unwarbled sound. I need an NOS and if I could ever find two I’d buy that as well. I’ve read in numerous places that the Telefunken W258HiFi turntable, (1973), has virtually the same chassis and the same 3-speed idler wheel. I’d definitely take a chance on one of those too. This was PE’s last manufactured turntable. They had already been purchased by Dual. The 3-speed Duals like, 1229Q, (1973), might be a fit as well. Any help on my search will be appreciated.
