Reading 78

The Reading 78 adds two features to the 77. First, the main drive wheel is designed to place gears within gears thereby increasing stability and adding protection. Second, a locking mechanism prevents the machine from being rotated in the incorrect direction. With the 78 the Reading Hardware company may have designed the ultimate turntable, which is supported by its popularity and longevity.
