Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    That was fascinating – thanks for a great, informative article. I still have a large collection of 78s (many by the Victor Talking Machine Co., forerunner of Victrola), 45s and 33s, along with turntables to play them – now I wonder about the manufacturing process for these old ones in the days before computers and computer-controlled automated machines. Probably much more labor-intensive, as so many manufacturing procedures were.
