I tried my '101' a couple of weeks ago, it had been eight years in storage. The first attempt was not promising. It would spin up only for four seconds, then stop. The next five or so attempts went the same way... Then, a few days later: 'I wonder if....?'
And, the darn thing worked...! An amazing machine.

There may be 'better' disk spinners available, but, few will be better made.
