Someone had to drop this little Schatz from several feet and it landed like a cat, on its feet which shattered the Bakelite inner base. Two out of three feet were broken but fortunately this base comes apart and most of the little pieces had not came apart like a puzzle.With some JB weld aluminum plate and clamps was able to make it usable again. Did have a hole to contend with and used electrical tape to seal the hole up while the JB weld was setting up. Think it came out ok and its out of view anyway. Had to hammer out the dents in the lower brass subplate from the feet being driven upwards but lucky the top of the bottom plate was not dented if that makes sense. Bottom assembly has two brass layers with a bit of an air gap between them. Theres some pitting on the top of the cover that looks like something was sprayed near it and only landed on the horizontal surfaces as the verticals are untouched. Polished it up but would take some serious sanding to get rid of those deep pits. Probably some household cleaner did that. Main spring was broken, bent first wheel axle, few other piviots were bent as well, all teeth were ok. Its up and running very well now.
