So weve been having a clear out at my parents... So many old things from the 70s....

 

Including this I found today :)

It even has the original mic that came with it :)

Cool huh (if it works)...

 

Which brings me to the actual crux of this thread... It doesn't have a power supply and its probably unlikely I will find one... Anyone know how I would wire this to a modern plug?

Yeah cheers man, that's appreciated.. I saw that first link last night... I was kinda hoping for a solution that doesn't involve cutting a new hole in the thing :)

You're welcome to bring it to mine but it's quite a drive? I'd take it apart and hard wire a mains lead. From the inside you'll be able to see what's live, neutral and earth. Or, you could fit a kettle lead type socket. I get ones designed to fit in a round hole which makes life easy.

Cheers man, that's appreciated... I may just take you up on that.. :)

 

I will see.. Theres a few places yet to clear out at my parents so the original lead may even turn up yet..

^hahahaha^

 

Are you sure it ever had a power adaptor? Looking at the pins in the battery compartment it looks like a regular 110v cord would pop on there, like from an electric shaver.

In the UK theres nothing regular about a 110v power chord or supply :) plus I think they are two prong

 

We will see.. I am curious as to if it works and what it sounds like..
