Sony TA-F6B Resto... Lots of Pictures! This is my fixer-upper. I bought it on eBay a couple months back as a complete parts-only unit. The guy described it looking much worse ('badly scratched face,' 'rusted top,' etc...) that what it actually is (little bit of rust on top, maybe one scratch a half-inch long); I think it looks great! Being in my graduating year, I never had much time to work on it. What I did do was find that a thermal fuse had opened and replacing that brought the amp to life! Since then it's been sitting... ... Until now. I'm a stamped-and-certified Mechanical Engineering Technologist! So today I took to tearing that amp down. It's pretty filthy inside and I think at some point something tried to build a nest under the amplification circuit. It's bad. My plan is to tear everything out, hose everything down, clean out the interior rust, patch up the top panel rust, and do a full TOTL recap. Polish the casing to a lustrous shine and plant it at the centre of my system. This will be my biggest project in a long while (too long), my pride and joy. I figure I'll update this thread as a work log. Wish me luck!
